Princess Leia wears this dress at the end of Star Wars: A New Hope during the ceremony scene. You can see the orginal dress here below...
For this dress I wanted it to be very similar to the original and keeping a bit of that authentic 1970's vibe to the over all fabrics. However, I selected fabrics that were higher quality than the 70's version..but still gave it a pretty drape to the dress.
For the main part of the dress I used a poly blend fabric that had a heavier hand to it that would flow over curves nicely. The dress is fully linend in a pretty matte satin.
The sleeves are a gorgeous sheer white color that drapes and hangs elegantly to the floor.
The bodice of the dress is a draped shaped to accent the bust and create a lovely low neckline.
I used a vegan leather in a silver color for the belt. Accented with metal details and chain closure in the back. I really liked how this looks from the back as well. Seemed to be very "Leia" to me.
Thank you for looking at my costumes.
