Character/Costume Description

This costume is from Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It is the "sleepless nights" nightgown. I decided this costume would be appropriate to make for an event in June 2006, since I was 8 months pregnant.
I wasn't happy with any patterns I could find, so I created my own based on images of the original gown. I hand stitched the 8 separate panels together using an heirloom stitch. The gown is lined, like the original. I created the "broach", hair decoration, and japor snippet from Sculpey and painted them with acrylic paint. The drape in the back is one piece, like the original, and held in place with three clasps of pearls & rhinestones similar to the original. The pearl "straps" are hand strung pearl beads which are detachable along with the broach for easier laundering.
