Character/Costume Description

The Parade gown Amidala wore to Celebrate the liberation of Naboo was re-created used nearly 80 meters of fabric.

The dress was made from a cream Duchess satin with no visable seems on the front. The front tie was hand painted in yellow and rose pink and outlined in silver glitter paint.

The cape was made with a base of a shell pink satin lined with white cotton with a tulle ruffle sandwiched in between the two layers. To create the petals I amde four different sized templates. All the petals are two layers individualy hand dyed with pink and yellow dye. In the original the edges were left raw but I would really like this piece to last so I rolled hemed all the edges before dying them. For the material of the petals, I used a mixture of organza and chiffon to create the soft look of the cape.

The parasol was created unsing various types of wire for the frame. It was covered in two layers of the pink dyed chiffon with ivory organza sandwiched between to give a a little sheen to the parasol. The spoke ends are beads and the swirl design was free hand in the remaining silver glitter paint. It is held on by straps that are hidden by the cape.

After several failed attempts at the headdress, I was given a lattice work piece of jewellery to wear on the forhead.
