Aotc prequel robe ?????

Recommended Posts

Is monks cloth acceptable fabric for the prequel male robe?  The CRL describes it as textured but doesn't say specifically monks cloth like the ANH CRL for the outer robe.   Also the model example at the top of the CRL shows  sleeves ends that appear hemmed where as the close up description of the robe shown a pictures with unhemmed tattered sleeve ends, which is it?

Monks cloth is usually acceptable/approvable but is far from accurate. The best fabric I have found is the Nobel Excellence blanket which is sold at Dillard's. It's a little pricey, but it is dead on. http://www.dillards.com/p/Noble-Excellence-Villa-Microcotton-Bed-Blanket/502810837?df=03584944_zi_barn_red

I had a thread with comparison photos, but all the picture links are dead. I'm in the process of updating my posts with links to Flickr. I'll copy the link here when I get a chance to fix that one.

As far as the model, when in doubt always go by the actual reference images, not the CRL model. There was someone about a year ago that had a pattern for the prequel robe that looked really good. I'll see if I can find it.

I was able to get my photolinks updated for that topic regarding the blanket fabric.

I was also able to find that other topic I mentioned.  Looks like the guy used the TK409 robe pattern and it turned out really well.  His photos appear to still work for now, but they are on photobucket so it's only a matter of time before the links die.
