Best of luck. Smile

At least you got something done. Too often you get stuck halfway done.

Thank you!

So true. One reason for me is they keep making movies with cool costumes!! I can't keep up!

Hi LaVonne! Congrats on the approval! I wanted to ask, where did you find the fabric for the shirt and vest? I have pretty much everything else for this costume done, but haven't been able to find good enough fabric to use for those two pieces.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Thank you, Bekah!

I started this several years ago (I know, I know...), so am not real sure where I got the fabric. As we only have a couple of fabric stores here in the Pensacola area, it would have either been Joann's or the small, independent one. I think the vest fabric came from Joann's. But again, it was at least 3 years ago, so they may not carry it anymore. (The independent store has a flat fold table, so if by chance the right fabric is there, it's probably going to be a one-time find.)

Much luck with your build. This is one of my favorite of the Leia costume.

Bekah, a few other ladies with this costume recommended that the vest be made with bottomweight twill. I found a good one at JoAnn's and got it on sale.

Bought it in white and then used RIT dye to make it the correct gray color. The shirt I modified out of an existing men's shirt I found at a thrift store. Hope this helps you! Very Happy

I also modified a shirt I purchased at a thrift store.

Thanks this does! I started thinking I'd have to dye something and it's good to know Joanns has fabric I can use!

Sadly this costume has fell back for me, but I'm hoping to finish it up soon after a couple others!
