Princess Leia Classic White Dress

This classic Star Wars costume is one of the best known, but this was actually the first time I have been asked to create one!

It is shown without the silver squares on the belt, but I made those out of rubber clay and hand stitched them to the leather belt.

The dress was TWO layers of a light poly blend jersey with lots of movement and drape.  I used the Padawan’s Guide, as usual when researching patterns, fabrics and upclose pictures.  The hardest part of this was getting the perfect drape on the “hood” which is not even really a hood!  It ended up being perfect!
