    Nice dress.
    I think it looks like a suead fabric.
    if I make one of these, I'll use suead.

    I'm having problems getting my digital camera to cooperate with me, but someone at the RPF posted some pictures ([link=http://rpf.prop-planet.com/viewtopic.php?topic=43468&forum=1]you can see them here[/link]) and we've got some up in the [link=http://www.swsyndicate.com/Archives/adcon2003.shtml]SWS event archives[/link]. So those will have to do for now.


    Jauzhmynn, I used a doe suede for mine. Very light and comfortable and just slightly furry/fuzzy.

    OH, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I've already finished my version (although I'll probably end up making again in the future), but it's great to have a shot of her shoes!

    I made this for the Dragon Con as a last minute project (not really last minute since i started a month before)

    If you have any patterns on hand with a princess seam you could probably just use that instead of buying a new pattern. But i used Simplicity 5189 since i hate zippers.

    I modified it so the side front and back was one peice and when i cut out the pattern i cut the dess peices about an inch below where the waist line is marked.

    As for the bottom of the dress i made an under skirt with simplicity 4881 veiw A added a extra panel for more fullyness and stitched all side seam except one and used the notch as a guide to where to stop.

    As for the over skirt that's attached to the top i cut strips that were the length of my waist to kne length, gave it a very jagged edge, then place the skirt pattern on it and sewed for pannels together and then gathered it to the top.

    not an exact science but that's how i made it more or less

    Was that you in the SW costume contest? I meant to get a picture, but Davin had my camera during the contest.

    Yeah, the one in the SW contest was great! I *think* I might have a pic of it....somewhere.

    This is one of my fave Leia dresses (you know there are so many..LOL!)

    Has anyone ever tried McCall's 4654? I am trying to make this dress tonight to wear to the SW DVD release party tomorrow night. I also couldn't tell what kind of fabric to use, and since Ihave limited funds I decided to go with Burlap lol, for a nice organic look and feel.

    Good job dinochick! I also love the "Innocent Independent Death Star Contractor" - what a great costume idea!

    I want to make this dress for a doll, but I'm having trouble finding good pics. I went back through this entire thread, but many of the links aren't working. Does anyone have pictures of the action figure?

    Ame,

    If you are a member of hyperspace, they just posted an image of her with a few Ewoks in the images section. It's titled "Hanging with the Ewoks". It's a view of the dress I have never seen before (as in, I didn't realize the slit up the side was that long!!)

    Thanks for the action figure link! That's really very helpful.

    No, I am not a Hyperspace member, but the pic you are describing sounds familiar. Is it this one by any chance? (I remember thinking the slit was remarkably high, also.)
