Ezra Bridger :: Your Favorite Rebel

Oct 20, 2015

More Star Wars sewing has happened around these parts!  This time it was for Louis’ actual Halloween costume this year.  He has decided to go as the lead character (and his favorite, of course) from Disney XD’s animated series: Star Wars Rebels.

Ezra Bridger is a 13-year old boy, whose parents were taken by the Empire, and who has joined forces with some Rebels to fight the good fight.  He’s shown strength in The Force and could be a very promising young fighter, but is still very much a teenager and makes a lot of impulsive mistakes.  I can see why Louis loves him so much.

Anywho.  When Louis decided to be Ezra for Halloween, I wasn’t sure how I was going to tackle the project.  Lucky me, I have a super talented lady that I can harass and somehow coerce into releasing her pattern.  Amy from Momma Quail Patterns hinted at making a jumpsuit and I held out on making anything until she called for testers.  Yay!  So glad I did!

The “Fix-It-All” Coveralls can literally be used as a base for SO MANY THINGS.  It was straight perfection for my Ezra costume.  And just wait until you see the army / doctor / racecar driver / ghostbuster / and everything else that the testers made.  You’ll see just how versatile this pattern can be!  The pattern is for a size range of 12m – 14 so it covers pretty much all kiddos.  Oh.  And it helped me make a very adorable fanboy super happy.

I used the coveralls version in size 5 with the collar option.  In the pattern, Amy even explains how to easily colorblock certain pieces (like the legs) so the process of personalization can be made a little easier.  The extra bits like the plate on the leg and the vest are self drafted by me…proof that using the FIA pattern as a base will literally help you make anything you imagination will allow.

The final product has the bodice a little shorter than what is showing on Louis.  But that’s part of what comes with being a tester.  Getting a sneak preview of new goodies is awesome, but you’re also being utilized for sizing and sometimes adjustments happen.

I am just CRAZY EXCITED about how well this turned out.  I mean.  He and the little Ezra figurine Louis has are pretty much twins.  Love it.

We are still on the hunt for the perfect light saber for Ezra.  So far we haven’t been able to find his in stores so we need to take to the internet and find it.  Until then, Louis was okay with having a standin for photos.  He kinda rocked this photoshoot, guys!

You still have time to get this pattern and use it for Halloween this year!  Any last-minute Halloween costume makers out there like I usually am?  Haha.
