Yeah, it does appear to be too golden. From the pics I've seen the original seems to be more orange/dark golden. But good luck with the swatch(es?).

I have received a piece of the fabric, and it's actually not that shiny or golden, as it appears to be in the pictures. Perhaps there is a flicker of hope in my search Amadalia

'Orange / dark golden'?? Shocked I'd say a very pale one at that ...

Actually, I've always thought she looked half naked under the lace at first glance ... The colour is too close to some kind of skin tone, I've been surprised too many times when watching the movie, thinking 'holy bantha, cleavage much?? Isn't she queen?? Oh, right, underdress ...' XD

Ill second that statement above.

Okay, so I finally dared to practice the 'tops' on the jacket. I've made one - and I think that I need some more practice before sewing in the actual jacket fabric...

Here goes:

Uuh, tops! I think they look really good (with my limited knowledge of the costume) Very Happy if that's the only practice you've had on making them, then you've done a really good job!

Thanks for the positive feedback Wink

I have made (in cooperation with Dust) a pattern for the 'horned gown'. I have used Dawns instructions, making it bigger.

Here is the pattern upside down:



Will this pattern do for the robe?

This pattern looks perfect! Warning I used a ton more material than I thought I would so make sure to make the spikes before your pattern cuts! Wink
