Hi all!

I've started on making this amazing costume, I will drop some photos and descriptions as I go. Comments very much appreciated. Very Happy

1 The Cape: I have luckily managed to get a perfect material from etsy US which was embroidered curtain. (I have some spare material so when I will finish the dress I could sell it - should last for 2 more capes)
Dying the cape was -Oh Sweet Lord Confused - Evil or Very Mad experience.
First trial with Tan Bronze RITZ dye was a failure - I had to re-do all cape as it darkened only the roses and leaves.
Second trial was a HUGE experiment in terms of proportions of the dye.
I used Acid dyes, Aztec Gold and Olive, but I added only tiny bit of it (Stove top method). I had few trials of timing on shawl's test materials and BINGO.


2. Headband - it looks quite dark on the photos I will get some more later.

3. The skirt. Aww yes that is getting to be my favourite one so far
Laughing although it took me some time to sew over the embroidery, ( I still need to attach 4-petal sequins and embroider some flowers on).

It is circle maxi skirt and I didn't follow much any instructions or patterns I just did what I felt like in terms of making it (it is my first time sewing skirt Shocked )



More photos and posts will follow.

Here are my references :

http://boards.theforce.net/threads/padmes-meadow-picnic-dress-v4-0.24588679/ --------> it is quite detailed and contains other's work

http://www.padawansguide.com/flowered.shtml -----------> here you can find great hi-res pics

> I am following 'making of' by Kay dee

>for sewing (blouse and possibly corset) I am using Simplicity costumes for Adults 5843 it hard to find as they stopped production. If anyone needs I can share it as I draw my own patterns on the basis of Simplicity to fit me ( I haven't cut out any of the original pattern)
Material - chiffon found on ebay, I asked for samples before buying.

> The shawl/cape as posted before I have spare material so I can share it as well. I bought it on etsy from US
dyes : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281457680177?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&var=580495862357&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT >> Aztec Gold and Olive

>4 petal sequins are very rare to find almost impossible, but when something is impossible Roman finds a solution 8-). He managed to find some old auction on ebay and contacted the seller. The lady sold me 1000 sequins - it should last for 2 dresses so I can share with the rest.


>gold buns - purchased from aliexpress.com

>shoes - Ivory, satin flats/pumps with little hill found on ebay. I am painting the soles gold.

> little dragonfly brooch - I will post 'making of' later


I will post more as I progress with the costume Very Happy
