Hi, my name is Christine and I am new to the forums Very Happy I live in central Pennsylvania, I am really excited about making my costume and getting started, but I am having some trouble on how to go about it. I want to make the white Princess Leia dress costume, but I am not the best sewer. So, how do I go about starting, and is there anyone willing to help me?

Welcome to the forums. I suppose the best place to start is in the tutorial section:
http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=252

You may also want to post in the Royalty/Senatorial forums for tips from the people who know the costume best...
http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=23

I hope that helps.

Welcome to the forum!!! Im from around Hershey area so once you join the RL we may bump into one another! I however cant help you much right now since I cant sou and I have no clue about that costume its standards. However there are plenty of people that do. Look at the links provided already. A lot of people come here saying I cant but but by the end of it all they did make there own costume. It may take a bit but hay so what we are not going any wear.

Welcome! That is a good choice if you are new to sewing and still want to be a princess! Its all straight seams and really simple to cut out. If you get the Jet-Set at Joann's you only need to cut one line (curved of course) for each layer (so twice) as you can just fold the fabric into quarters (look at the very first tutorial posted.)

Hi and welcome to Echo Base! My wife did the PL costume that she made herself, so we would be willing to help in any way possible. We're in Harrisburg. A good reference would be to check out Pam's PL page which is where we started: http://chucrew.com/Leia/dresspattern.html

When you're set to start, let me know and we'll make a costume build thread for you to keep us appraised of you progress!
