The problem with this dress is the waist section. You can see it in one of the product pictures. It's a very wide waist band which will never be fully hidden by the belt. So no, this dress won't be approvable...

By pure chance I came across this etsy seller and her Leia dress is approvable, as far as I can tell. And it's exactly the same price, so...

It really depends on what the back looks like, what the fabric is, and how it looks on the wearer. I really can't judge that from here, but I don't see any glaring issues in the front.

I had actually contacted the maker of this dress, I was concerned that the "belt section" was sown into the dress and that would make it not approveable. But she kindly told me that it is a separate piece of fabric that is in fact removable, she just includes it. (I guess for if you were wanting to use it as a Halloween costume or for non approved RL cosplay reasons.)

I can screenshot the message if anyone would like to see it for themselves.

Take Care! (:
