There may be another topic posted on this, but I didn't see one when I initially looked for it... I have been studying the purple dress Padme is wearing when she meets Anakin and Obi Wan again for the first time. Does anyone have any thoughts on this dress? I have managed to find views of all sides of this dress, but I am at a loss for how to go about making it.

I thought Simplicity [link=http://simplicity.com/designFrame.cfm?designId=5882&design=9533] #9533[/link] could be modified. It has many lines that are similar to the ones in the dress and coat, but many fabric panels will have to be added and the sleeves need to be adjusted. The main problems I am trying to think through are how to get the fabric to look right. The dress looks like it is made out of velvet or something heavy like that, and it would be way too difficult and time-consuming to embroider all the details on it. Any ideas?
