    Nidrail,the dress for the doll turned out beautifully! =D=


    Ooooo! Did you strictly followed the pattern or modify it to make it even more baggy to accomodate the fake tummy?

    I got this pattern at hand and when I'm free will like to try it out. Am planning to add those seams on the front too (guess got to do it by hand since my sewing machine suck with only a few basic stitches) so wonder how much modification is needed. ;)

    Lovely Natalie I used the pattern, made a few alterations. I made the corset underneath a lace up one, for support. And I used a darker blue satin. No photos yet, but in two weeks attending a Con in Sydney, hope to have some then. ;)

    There's a beautiful pattern by McCall's:
    http://www.sewingpatterns.com/sewingframe.php?mdl=http://www.smartcart.com/1sew/cgi/search.cgi?terms=costumes::&category=Costumes

    I haven't seen it actually made, but the sample in the picture looks great!

    It's beautiful! ;)

    Now this is really itching me to try out the pattern, modify it and make my Gown too, tho' I'll probably combined it with a simplified version of her AOTC Bathrobe since I don't wear anything sleevesless. [face_blush]

    Thank you!! I made a large velvet cape with satin lining under it, and it covered my shoulders. And I look at it and know I shouldnt wear sleevless either. Hmmm....

    I was pleased with the way it turned out, and the pattern works well, the corset under it gave me a bit of grief, but fiddling got it done. It does pay to have it, supports the wiggly/jiggly bits :p Although, due to my bust size, I was unable to use the zipper they suggested. I altered it and made it a lace up corset under it. My daughter was able to 'tie me in' so it was firm fitting around the bust.

    Great pictures and great job. Everybody's looks great! I love mine too, but didn't break it out this year for Halloween as I had planned. It was a bit cold here.

    I'm just wondering, is the McCall's pattern the best one to use for this gown?

    It was pretty easy to folow and the fall of the drappery at the back worked really well, I could see how it would fall as soon as I cut it out.

    Well, without proper research on the exact design of the dress, I'll say that it's the closest thing we got for this Gown. ;)

    It's not prefect as you still got to draft a proper drape or split the front to create those pieces that are sew together using those "Cross Stitch" Stitches and a few other stuffs but by following the basic design given, you can create a Gown that is easily recognized as Padme's "Sleepless Knights" Gown.

    So it's recommanded for those wanting to do this dress.
