I have a friend who is interested in a costume, specifically the white dress worn by Sheltay Retrac in ROTS. Any leads on fabric, patterns, etc?

Finding an appropriate fabric for this one is the biggest challenge, I thought. I bought a sheer fabic and lined it with a cream crepe, but didn't have enough fabric to do the cape. So, I'm either going to redo the whole thing if I find plenty of a fabric I like, or use a different texture for the cape.

I don't have the pictures added in yet, but the text write-up is posted: http://leiacostuming.stormtrooperprincess.com/sheltay/

I've done this costume.. for the pattern I just used a sundress pattern and altered it. I think it was simplicity. All I had to do was add the slits to the sides of the skirt and add the second layer to the bodice. If you need help, let me know.

Trisha's book Dressing A Galaxy has a nice picture of her.

I'm planning on doing this one, could you tell me how you did the sleeve/gloves and cape? Did you make your own pattern for that?

I used the padawans guide as a reference for the cape... there's a link Naboo_ Girl's making of page that has a pattern. I just used white velcro on the back of the neck to hold it closed.

For the gloves I used a stretchy fabric.. same as for the dress. Basicly measured around my arm to make a fitted tube that went to my down to my knuckles and up past my elbow and cut out a thumb hole.

The headpiece is made out of sintra glued together and shaped to fit my head.. there's a hairclip on each side to keep it in place.

Hope this helps Very Happy
