Hello,

I'm helping my wife with her senatorial Leia build (I'm mostly working on the belt and gun). She is having a hard time seeing how the hood is attached and where.

We have seen the tutorials and after looking at some WIP here, I think the hood is attached around the collar? If that is correct, is it sewn all the way around or just in spots?

Also, any tips on how it is sewn? as in, do you sew it down before the collar?

I think it is sewn all the way around on both sides of the keyhole, but wanted to confirm.

Thanks for any help!

Hello. The hood is indeed attached along with the collar, from the sides and back.
Basting it in before you sew the collar on will help keep it in place as you sew. Smile

Thanks Lora! She finished it Friday with only a minor colar issue that she plans to fix. She needs some boots and extensions, but she looks great!
