I am planning on making Breha Organa's gown for CVI and wanted to get some opinions on some fabric I found that could work for the brocade-style outer dress. I am hoping to order the fabric soon, and I have had trouble deciding which one is the closest match.

Here is her dress:



And here are the fabrics I found:

Fabric 1:

Fabric 2:

Fabric 3:

Fabric 4:

I am leaning toward the first one, but the third one is close in terms of the pattern. Any opinions/input is greatly appreciated Amadalia

The first one is really a close match. The third one looks pretty close as well. All the selections are great though. Where did you find your fabric choices?

wonderful fabrics! I've been looking a bit at this costume, but finding the right fabric scared me off - where did you find this? Smile

Absolutely the first one. That is some gorgeous fabric, and it looks the closest if you ask me.

First one for sure! The overall shape of the motifs from a distance is VERY close!

Oh, if I can make it to CVI, I'd LOVE to have you pose in this gown with the Princess Leia reborn I'm going to be making (a reborn is a doll that is painted and rooted so it looks like a real baby).

What kind of fabric does everyone think the solid blue of the under skirt and sleeves are made of? It seems to be a bit different than the brocade-like material of the tunic and upper skirt.

Definitely the first one. The blue underskirt looks like a blue shot through with gold fibers in terms of color. It's got that iridescent quality to it.
