and sewing machines and I are far from friends.

Me, too! They are notoriously fickle to set up and then once you finally get them good luck with anything other than a wildly winding path.  Cheesy Cheesy

On the bright side, the last leather paint color I needed came today, so once I finish the couple side and belt pattern pieces left, I can begin cutting and painting, then stitch together. Once the Mannequin is free, it will be easier to start the robes. I'm saving the bracers and hand guards for last because I need to be able to measure the bracers with the sleeve of the robe on, and the hand guards have A LOT of detailing, so they'll probably need to be attempted more than once XD

With the exception of the belt straps (Iím cutting those to size when I have the buckles) patterning for the breastplate is finished! Iím currently tracing out on the back of the vinyl so I can cut.

Definitely like seeing the notes on the pieces, telling you how they go together.
Very good plan

Yup! And what color they end up, since I'm using the same vinyl and painting for each one. The breastplate is a jigsaw puzzle, so I think it would just be completely unmanageable to attempt any other way. This way I can also save my pieces to redo the whole thing in real leather later, once I feel more confident that I won't be wasting money on excess materials. Even then though, I think I would get all the same color and dye it to the needed shade to save on costs.

Silly me needs to stop trying to do things in the middle of the night because I just realized that all of these pieces will be mirrored (right on left and left on right) because the patterns are right way up but the vinyl is right side down. Good thing itís supposed to be symmetrical lol

Worst case scenario, I have enough left to try again (maybe try two more times)

Oh my goodness! I didn't see this when I replied before... You're welcome! I am by far not an expert on costume building, but I figure my own learning process can help others learn too Smiley 

PS, if you continue light side on your KOTOR playthrough, eventually you can get your own in-game robes when you reach the Star Forge Cheesy

Yeah I like the how I built this format as well.  When I make stuff, a lot of times I'm in the zone and by the end of the day it's done and there's no pictures of how we got there.
