Hello Everyone,

I am currently working on a Leia TLJ Raddus Bridge costume build to join the Rebel Legion. My husband is EzraBridger_1 and has two approved Ezra costumes. I am working to get my costume completed and approved, so we can troop together with Endor Base.

I researched the fabrics needed and purchased them (very expensive!). Therefore, I want to wear an undergarment to protect the dress. Here is the undergarment appropriate for empire-waist gowns. This is a bodiced petticoat with a boned bust support. This is made from French twill cotton in the Regency style. There is a 3.75” flounce on the bottom. The neckline includes a bias tape draw adjustment. The petticoat needs to be hung for about 3 -5 days and then a series of pin tucks (or small horizontal tucks will be added just above the flounce. To support the weight of the of the dress, at least 5 rows of tucks will be added and if needed ½” hoop tape.



A pattern was drafted and used to cut the wool gabardine fabric:



Flatlining was completed to the main fabric:

Here is the dress fabric on the dress form showing the boat neck collar in preparation to gather the front portion at the empire waist:



Sleeves will be lined and attached to the dress after buttonholes for the back closure are completed. Here is the back view of the dress with the buttons and sleeves attached:



Now time for a fitting. Here is a front view of the dress on me:



Starting to work on the coat. Serging the raw edges prior to airbrushing:



I will be adding more pictures of the build soon. Thank you and May The Force Be With You!

Here are pieces of the coat ready to be airbrushed:



This picture shows one piece (below) with the first coat of Jaquard Lumiere silver fabric paint applied with airbrush and one piece (above) unpainted:



The inside lighting does not do it justice. I will provide better pictures airbrushing and assembly have been completed. Thank you and May The Force Be With You!

Looks like a great start to your project. Very Happy And a good idea with protective undergarments. Highly recommend that for other costumes as well!

Hello,

Here are a few more pictures of the dress build. The dress waistband is actually not a full band. It only lightly gathers the front part of the dress at the empire waist line from the bust points to slightly towards the side seams. Here is pinning with gather points:



Here is a picture of the waistband on:



This has been a very challenging project, but is finally coming together. More to follow soon. Thanks and May The Force Be With You.

This costume is one of my favourite from the new movies, and your costume seems like a great job to me Smile
