I finally decided that it was time to add this iconic costume to my closet, and I couldn't be more excited!

8 yards of the new Jet Set 2 fabric at Joanns has been acquired. I have read the issues everyone has with the original version of this fabric, but I'm hoping that this stuff improves on some of that. I'll be using Pam's tutorial to make the dress. Shouldn't be too complicated, I've made one before for a commission.

Going to be making my own belt with leftovers of a hide of thinner, softer leather I have and aluminum sheets. The template from the tutorials section will help loads with this!

Looking at getting these for the boots. They will probably be a little wide in the calf for me, but I'll make it work. It'll be a good spot to hide my phone and cards!

I already have medium-long dark hair, so I'll be wrapping my own hair into Kanekalon hair for the buns. I'll probably cover them with hairnets after to keep them neat while trooping.

I'm hoping to finish this pretty quickly since I have most of the materials already on hand. Progress updates to come! Leia Buns

I LOVE Ellie Boots! While I don’t have this particular version, the versions I have are wonderfully comfortable.

Between long shifts of working my Halloween job this weekend, I somehow found time to get my dress done! I'm so extremely pleased with how it turned out too!





I need to go back into the collar because its a tad bit too big on me, but that's an easy fix. Once I have the belt started, I will take pictures with it on me. Even with the elastic waistband added, the weight of the fabric pulls it down below my waist.

Also glad to hear the positives about the boots! I'll definitely be ordering them soon!

More progress yay!

I took the collar in and it fits so much better! I also have my base leather belt piece cut and painted, so I can take proper pics in the dress for y'all! Forgive me for not wearing the proper bra, I was too excited to throw it on lol.





And here's a pic of the belt.



I've got the aluminum plates cut out, edges still need to get smoothed out. I will need to paint those and the cover buttons so they all match in color. Any recommendations for painting metal pieces would be helpful!

Boots have also been order and will be coming in next week!

Boots came in yesterday! I love them so much, super comfy. They're as big in the calf for me like I expected; there's just enough room to hide my phone and trading cards.



Belt is also done! Sanding down the plates and cover buttons with rough, medium, and fine grit sandpaper did the trick to get the paint to adhere. It's all glued down with E6000. All I need to do is curve the plates to my waist when the glue has dried enough.



I've got the kanekalon hair ready to go for the buns too, so I'll be ready to take approval pictures as soon as tomorrow once the E6000 has set. Super excited!
