I decided I needed a quick and easy costume that was readily recognizable. I found some white knit fabric on sale while browsing the store today and decided to give ANH Leia a go. The fabric is a smidge see through, even when doubled, but not so bad the proper underclothing can't keep things family friendly.

It still needs to be hemmed, and the belt is just a stand in to give it the right shape.

From what I can see, it looks good. Do you have the keyhole opening in the back?

As long as you wear nude colored underwear and bra, you should be fine. Very Happy

Yup, keyhole opening, hook and eye closure, slits in the sides, open hood. I used Pam's tutorial. I did have to stretch out the sleeves a touch. Seems I have gorilla arms, but they end at my wrist so it should be all good.

I'm afraid I don't really know. :/ It was a (very large) remnant, and beyond a price scrawled on the inside of the fabric roll my local fabric store doesn't really label anything, especially not remnants. I just looked for something with a nice drape that was stark white and not too see through.

I did buy a wonderful 96% bamboo rayon/4% lycra blend fabric for my Asajj costume off fabric.com that had a lovely hand and drape. I am certain it would be amazing for this costume in white. (Mine was black) Problem is it was $10 a yard and I wasn't looking forward to buying 8 yards of it. I hear people usually use "Jet Set" fabric from Joann's. It is much more reasonably priced. It seems to be on sale right now.

I just wanted to know if it was a cotton/poly blend, because I saw that at JoAnn. I really wanted the polyester, but they only sell it online.
