This is turning out beautifully! The only potential issues I can see are that the jacket may need a little tailoring below the "waist" seam and at the shoulders, as right now it's giving you very broad shoulders and looking a bit bulky.  Seeing all the fabrics together though, boy you nailed them.

So I added some tailoring and the second seam line at the waist. Unfortunately, it is now all tailored perfectly to my body, I’m just not tall and skinny like Satine. I’m short and round.  I added the cord to the jacket and the Gloves are finished with cord and jewels. I need to clear coat the glove jewels.  The earrings turned out well.

My own critique: I need to make the book cuffs wider, they look too small in the photos.

CRLs for belt:
Belt:
– Belt buckle is a flat gold disk approximately 2.5” (6.5 cm) across.
– The buckle is decorated with green gems the same color as the jacket lining. There is one large circular gem approximately 1” (2.5 cm) across, and six smaller teardrop shaped gems extending under it like sun rays. The teardrop gems decrease in size from the center outwards.
– There is a thick metallic orange or bronze cord or wire just under the seam of the jacket that ends under the central buckle. The cord/wire turns down at a right angle under the bust, then turns horizontal again. The cord/wire curve turns upward again at the sides of the jacket and sits just below the waist line at the back of the jacket. The same cord/wire and color should be used for the cuffs and belt.
– The belt is placed on the center, fitted part of the jacket roughly at the waist. The jacket fastening must not be visible, but hidden under the buckle.

CRLs for gloves:
Gloves:
– Gloves are fitted and made by dark grey-purple or dusty eggplant colored fabric or suede. Gloves should match pants.








I need to work on the wig and makeup next.

I can definitely see a difference, it looks much better! I wouldn't make the cuffs too much wider, maybe half an inch. Great job, Rayne!

So Satine is done! Yay! I ordered a custom wig. I think it turned out really well (minus my serious face).  I made a few tweaks to the style to match photos.  On to preapp.

CRLs for hair:
Hair:
– Hair is styled back with curls on the nape and without visible clips. The forehead is framed by two curled locks of hair. Natural hair colors only, blond hair recommended.
*If a wig is used, it should be should be of a good quality and seem like real hair.

it's coming along really well! i love seeing people do some of the more sewing oriented costumes for star wars!
if i might ask one question/offer a suggestion, as you're sewing pieces together, have you been pressing the seams flat? the seams around the waistband in particular seem a bit "puffy", which i find is usually from the seam allowance not laying flat inside the seam.

Got my preapp feedback. Not too bad. Made some minor adjustments and submitted my app. Yay!

Fixes:
I didn’t know there were clear hair pins, so I went and found those for the wig
I ironed out some of the wrinkles and adjusted the elastic on the sleeves to tighten them up a bit
I bought temporary hair color for my hairline
Made the lining of the jacket show further towards my waist

I was approved in November of 19 with a suggestion to trim the wig. This is my updated kit
