This one was revised pretty recently, so all I had to do was add photos and clarify a bit of confusing wording. I did not make any content changes.

Character Description
Princess Leia Organa was one of the Rebel Alliance’s greatest leaders, fearless on the battlefield and dedicated to ending the tyranny of the Empire. Daughter of Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker, sister of Luke Skywalker, and with a soft spot for scoundrels, Leia ranks among the galaxy’s great heroes. But life under the New Republic has not been easy for Leia. Sidelined by a new generation of political leaders, she struck out on her own to oppose the First Order as founder of the Resistance. These setbacks in her political career have been accompanied by more personal losses. (Source: Star Wars Databank)

Cloak

Item Image
URL: http://www.senate.rebellegion.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/leia_0010.jpg
Source:

Required Details
• Ankle-length cloak and yoke made of a semi-sheer off-white matte fabric (fabric may have a light pearl sheen), silk crepe de chine or similar recommended.
• The lining of the cloak is a sheer silk chiffon or similar rust red or brick red fabric that matches the color of the tunic and pants. The lining and outer fabric of the cloak are pleated and sewn together without top stitching.
• The yoke is lightly padded and quilted with straight quilted lines that are closer together at the collar and become further apart towards the bottom of the yoke, like wheel spokes. There are an odd number of quilted lines: 17 to 25 recommended, proportional to the wearer (the original had 21 quilting lines). The quilting thread matches the color of the tunic and pants.
• The front of the yoke does not close at the center front and lies open on either side of the neck to show the tunic.
• The yoke comes to a rounded point in the center of the back; this point should reach down roughly to the lower edge of the shoulder blades.
• The sides of the yoke reach just over the ends of the shoulder.
• The yoke has a standing collar, approximately 2” / 5 cm tall.
• The yoke has the same metallic copper braid trim as the tunic, decorating all edges, including the neckline seam of the collar.
• The cloak is attached to the yoke with neat knife pleats.
• The cloak is decorated with five large identical paisley patterns, filled with small, thick, contoured X shaped patterns. The patterns have five small rosettes in the middle and five larger rosettes at the bottom of each.
• There is one pattern on the center back, one on each side, and one on each side of the front. The two front patterns are cut off at the upper right and upper left large rosettes that flank the center front, with the finished center front edges of the cloak cutting off each of these outer rosettes just at the outer dark brown stitch ring. The five patterns are sized and placed proportional to the wearer.
• The patterns include the following colors: butter yellow/dark cream, light/medium yellow, dusty rose pink, rust red or brick red (same color as tunic and pants), dark burgundy red, and dark brown. The X patterns are outlined with the light/medium yellow in lines of stitching (stem stitch or similar stitching) to enhance the overall shape.
• The five patterns may be embroidered or finely printed onto the fabric.
• The cloak has the same metallic copper braid trim on all edges.

Optional Details
• Portions of the decorated pattern on the cape have a method of shading or shadow stitching (also known as a reverse herringbone stitch) on the wrong side of the fabric to provide depth when viewed from the right side of the fabric.
• The lining can have side seams if necessary.

Hi, I happened to see this post, and though I would love to see all the little edits highlighted, as I'm in the midst of working on this very costume, and knowing what's been updated since I started looking at it would be helpful, I did see this, which I thought you might like to make a slight edit to, for grammar:

Quote:
five patterns are sized and places proportional to the wearer


I suspect you mean "placed"?

Thank you for the catch. Yes, it's a type that has snuck in. It happens sometimes. XD

I'm wondering about the wording on the shoes. Ballet slippers tend to be satin (at least the ones that I have seen). Do we want to include that material specifically or does it not matter? Also, it currently reads "similarly styled slippers". Do we want to add "flats" in the details? It is possible people may think they can only use slippers when flats, if they look correct, would be acceptable also. Just a thought.

Well, 'flats' as a word is already in the standard so I think it should be clear enough.

I tend to agree with Lora. I think this was going for the most easily translatable wording, and "ballet slippers" could lead people to toe shoes, which wouldn't be correct.

Typo has been fixed in the first post, so it looks like we are ready to send this to the LMO team to be finalized.
