My goal is to complete it and have it approved so I can submit it for the last weekend of Disney SWW to go with the theme of Prequels proposed for that weekend. I will be doing ROTJ version for the first weekend parade, next weekend


I hope I make the deadline for submission. Doing each section of the dress, which has six sections for fullness is coming along. The front and back middle are done and one of the front sides. I am getting one or two sections done per day mainly because of all the steps in prep and process.

I have two more sections to do before adding a backing and assembling the pieces. Here is one of the front side sections hanging to dry



I had to order some more etching compound so will be waiting until Monday to do the last two pieces. Then I will sew on the liner/backing.

I have the back pieces pinned together with tabbard over it.
Front side pieces are drying and then need a lining.

progress; front and back stitched at shoulder, sleeves attached at shoulder,

It is too loose at this point and needs sizing down. I made it larger to account for wool shrinking but it did not shrink as much as I thought so I need to take it in somewhat before hemming.

Buttons are ready to go onto the tunic. Sleeves will be sewn closed once I get the sizing done.

Getting closer to finish;

hemming and final trim around neck is still to be done.

neckline of dress still needs finishing and then some final touches. I still need to figure out how to attach the fine lace trim on the tabbard..perhaps some fabric glue..

I am showing the same necklace as for my ep 6 but am going to make a new rope section for this one as it does not go to the back of the neck like my ep6 does.

I will write up the process and post it here in case anyone else wants to do similar.

I have the lace ribbon glued to the front of the tabbard. I checked her sitting next to Padme on the couch in the deleted scene and from what I can see the lace ribbons are not on the back of the tabbard





I still need to hem both tabbard and dress
New necklace made because I saw that the medalion is hanging from one chain in this version and three wrapped around chains in the ep6 version.

That would be awesome. I normally have short, red hair, and I really like Mon Mothma as a character, so I've always wanted to do her costume Smile

Mara Jade;
First thing to do is go to Dharma Trading company and see if they ship Fiber Etch to you. It is a bit expensive and you need two full bottles of their largest bottle. That is what I used for this.
