Character/Costume Description

I have always loved the simple elegance of this dress. So when I needed a last minute halloween costume and I wanted it to be Star Wars, I made a list of potentials. Then I found a cheap but beautiful faux suede at Wal-Mart and knew I had to make this one. I used a McCall's Stitch N' Save pattern that had a princess seamed shirt, modified the neckline and sleeves, gave it no back closure, then drafted a skirt pattern that turned out quite nice. The cross-stitching was done with an embroidery floss that was near, but just a little lighter, to the color of the faux suede. The sandals I made using scraps of fabric and the wooden soles of some old sandals that had the leather falling apart. The hair was a braid taken off of a wig, the suede strips wrapped around in a criss-cross, that was attached to a headband.

Finished October 2007
