Padme's Fireside Gown has been on my to do list for ages... and I think I've located lace for the skirt.

How does it look?

If it looks okay, the next step is to figure out how much to order!

Wow. That is some of the best lace I have seen for this in a long time.

Finally getting down to work on this!

How does the lace look over the silver?

That pattern and color balance look fantastic.

I realized I never got around to updating this after approval and I'm thrilled to finally share my patterns for Padme's Fireside Corset Gown!





Photos by Dan Tooine Studios

This full write up is on my blog http://www.jeneyre.com/2020/05/padmes-fireside-corset-gown-patterns.html



More pictures are here: https://jeneyrecosplay.smugmug.com/Star-Wars/Padme-Fireside-Corset-Gown/Padme-Fireside-Corset-Gown-Submission

I'm so proud of this one, as I won the Needlework category in the Celebration Chicago Costume Contest wearing it. One of the judges had even seen the costume in person in the archives! There were so many absolutely BREATHTAKING costumes! My husband got a bunch of photos here: https://jeneyrecosplay.smugmug.com/Conventions/Celebration-2019/SWCC-Costume-Contest

https://www.starwars.com/news/most-impressive-fans-star-wars-celebration-chicago-cosplay



Here's the PDF pattern for the gloves, corset, neckpiece, and capelet: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HhhoXJmKeopK_OxW2RMYaggAMq4hSls9



And here's the PDF pattern for the skirt: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1l-0oagwGE4JyxyeCW8H75DshbdpFTX1F



I spent almost 120 hours working on this costume, with over half of that time spent beading.



The corset was modified from a late 1800s corset pattern I custom drafted for myself a couple years ago. I moved the seam locations and adjusted the top and bottom, and changed it from busk front/back lacing to center front zip.



I added a train balayeuse underneath to support the skirt and protect the bottom from dragging on the floor. There's also a petticoat between the skirt and the petticoat that the train balayeuse is part of.



I made the glove pattern from a tight-fitting sleeve pattern. The choker pattern was modified from the back (back) of the neck piece of my Vice Admiral Holdo pattern.



I made the "pacman" shaped beads on the choker medallion by cutting scrap pieces of ABS plastic left over from my Stormtrooper. I painted them with gloss black paint.



If you'd like more guidance on how this came together, please check out my photo build album: https://jeneyrecosplay.smugmug.com/Star-Wars/Padme-Fireside-Corset-Gown/Padme-progress-photos

The patterns were made to fit approximately a 37" bust, 30" waist, and 38" hip, at 5'7" tall. Making mock-ups on these patterns to get the fit exactly right is critical!

Thanks so much for the update! Very Happy It's great having these resources for others to use and maybe finding the costume a little less daunting.
