Hi all! I finally made it over here! Some folks here may know me but for those who don't - my name is Courtney and I'm from the Nashville area. Smile

I'm currently working on Padme/Handmaiden battle outfit from Episode I to be approved as my first formal so I can officially join the Legion. Here are some in progress photos!

Jacket front, pinned pieces (not sewn yet) - w/Flash

The sleeve pieces are just pinned on inside out so I can see how they'll lie.

Back of the jacket pieces pinned:

Pants - In progress pic. These have since been completed...

Trim detail (Yep it's sitting on my Kaylee bodice):

I plan on working on sewing and lining the jacket this week - my satin should come in tomorrow.

Thoughts? Suggestions? I'm all ears!

Looks like you're off to a great start! I know nothing about sewing so I have no advice but I'm looking forward to seeing the progression.

Hi Courtney, welcome to the Corellian Base. You've got a great start on your costume. Feel free to come out anytime to an event, we have quite a few on the horizon. A costume is not needed, you can just hang out with us and we always need handlers.

I'm totally stoked! Since I just joined the forums, I assume the events list is in here somewhere? *pokes around* I'll be lurking here in a bit so I can see what all's going on. Plus! I'm definitely going to D*Con so I'll see some of you there as well.

Thanks Orion knight-star! I will probably hound you with a million questions in the future...

Sweet updating of the jacket. Here's what I did last night:


102_1780 by nesrawkstar, on Flickr
Trying to figure out the trim placement. It's so bunchy around curves. Grr. I think I can remedy this with liquid stitch and then sew it on.


102_1778 by nesrawkstar, on Flickr
The back view - going to add gores to make the coat more swooshy.


102_1777 by nesrawkstar, on Flickr
Front view - need to attach collar, hook and eye tape closure, trim, hem it, and add gores. Also need to finish hemming the sleeves.

Bad cell pic of the finished pants. Very Happy

Thanks so much! I definitely want to make this my first formal. I'm working on Mustafar Padme as well, but this one is my main focus ATM. Smile

^_^ Indeed!

Update on the costume:

*Someone* decided to sew the sleeves onto the jacket before finishing the hem on them...*cough* so now I'm having to do them by hand. Luckily I remembered how to do an invisible slip stitch. Well, let's just say this project (like all of my other projects) now has the blood, sweat, and tears put into it.

Not much work is going to get done to this until Monday since I have another con this weekend...different universe - I get to meet Shatner @_@

I saw that Shatner was going to be here Sunday, very cool of him to come to Nashville. Cool

Agreed. I'm also glad I didn't have to buy passes to the con (won them!) - 90 bucks a pop for the general admission plus 80 for a photo op with The Shat.

That is Cool! I would like to have Capt Kirk's autograph but it's just too expensive for the auto and the 1 day admission. Let us know how it goes.
