My daughter turns 10 mid-June this year. She's been begging for a Ceremonial Leia gown for about a year. It's now a priority to make as I want to give it to her for her birthday. I'm posting it here because I'm going to use official guidelines to make it, and because she's so darn close to my height (and sort of my size), that I may be able to borrow it from her to wear as well. So, it could be an official submission for me -- possibly. Depends on if I can reduce the size of my caboose to fit this nicely. See? A difficult variable to overcome to make it official.

I can say I have a pair of silver heels from the 90's that are still in great shape, and are almost identical to Carrie Fisher's on screen shoes. Who knew my love of all things silver would net me accurate shoes for this...

Wish me luck, ladies. I'll post pictures when I can.

Just picked up 5 yards of heavy white diamond satin. The facing is dull for a satin, so I think it'll do nicely. I have to admit, I have the absolute worst luck when it comes to gauging the right amount of material for sewing projects. And I know I'm only going to use 2 yards for my daughter, but I bought 5 anyways. Crazy, yeah? Well, if it goes over well, I'll make one for myself too. But mainly I overkilled the amount because EVERY time I go back for that quarter yard more I need of anything, they're sold out and discontinued.

Honest, it happens every time. This particular fabric is discontinued as of recently and I managed to get a large 5 yard chunk transfered to my local store. If I know my sewing skills, I'll need that extra quarter yard. Smile

Got the sheer material and notions too. So, it's happyland sewing for me.
