I'm new to the forum, so correct me if I'm posting in any wrong place and stuff. Anyway Hi! I've now for 2-3 years wanted to join the Rebel legion, and now I've finally managed to get my lazy arse up and running, and am now trying to make the olive green velvet dress from episode 3.

So far I've managed to gather fabric for the whole dress, the belt and also the Crinoline underneath it all. The velvet fabric is a little bit more greenish than the real costume, but I've been searching all over and I think that this will work out fine. It really depends on where you see it, and the lighting too.



But I need some help finding the diamond fabric used in the sleeves. I've search all over and cant find anything that matches up right. I've tried to contact manhattan fabrics, since I saw somebody get an almost exact match, so waiting for an reply.
If anybody know some place or have seen anything that could fit nicely without being a mismatch, I would appreciate that sooo much!

Hey Ibelinn!

I found this fabric on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-Pure-Silk-Brocade-fabric-Metallic-Gold-Red-Green-/260832211376?pt=US_Fabric&hash=item3cbacfb1b0

Its not exact the same color but its pure silk brocade, it should be possible to dye the fabric.
The pattern comes very close to the original fabric. Its not the same but with the right color it would work.

Greetings from germany
