Character/Costume Description

Princess Leia - heroine icon, princess, senator, lover of scruffy nerfherders. I had planned on Jaina Solo being the first SW costume I ever did, but I got so excited about the OT DVD Midnight Release that I did Leia's trademark ANH gown for the event. It's such a simple yet beautiful costume and the hair is so much fun!

Version 2! I didn't know how to sew when I first did Leia so I bought the outfit. But I'm an accuracy freak so once I learned to sew I knew I had to redo the dress. Despite looking VERY simple, there are so many little variations with the outfit and details that go overlooked. If I do a third version the only upgrade I would do would be to make the sleeves slightly larger at the end.
I was greatly honored by getting chosen to be Princess Leia in the 2007 Rose Parade for Lucas' Star Wars Spectacular.
