I've been toying with this in my brain and want to do it since the patterned material showed up on Spoonflower. That said, I went on a multi-hour mission to find the copper piping that trims the tunic. What I found isn't currently available, but I've spoken to the Etsy seller and they're going to be getting more in. This is what I've found:

Would like to hear what previous Bespin Leia costume builders have to say about it. Thanks![/img]

Kreinik #32 braid in copper is what I found via Padawan's guide!

I have three spools set aside for my trim.

I'm curious too as to what others have used. I am open to suggestions and can always find a use for the braid elsewhere. (Like cross stitch projects.)

I've got the Kreinik #32 copper braid for mine. I've seen other use it and it looks great.

What I've bought is a sew in between the fabric layers piping. I think it'll work well, but really wanted to get opinions on it's appearances. I know about the Kreinik, but was hoping to be able to avoid hand sewing that on by using the one I found on Etsy.

(Whoops! Using husbands access, accidentally!)

I also use the kreinik braid and think the color is great, plus they have a ton of widths to choose from
