When no standard exists here is what i recommend

-spend as many hours gathering reference as you can. Both in Google and In watching the movie and collecting screenshots.
- make a WIP board and ask questions and ask for feedback on your findings.
- write your own guide in needed items (CRL) this helps everyone! Smile
- I draw out on paper what I think the costume looks like

In general I spend as much time researching as I do sewing. Half the fun is finding information on these amazing creations! Its a beautiful dress you have chosen!


Couple of good photos here of the dress

Edit: Found someone who made the dress you might be looking for? Maybe shoot them a PM?

Hello Ciderqueen!

Mon Mothma is a good choice Smile depending on which costume, she can fit into two separate categories:

-Her Episode III senatorial gown fits into Royalty/Senatorial (detachment being RLGS)
-Whereas Her Episode VI gown belongs in Rebel Command, since she is a leader in the Rebel Alliance. Her detachment for this costume would be Galactic Strategic Command (GSC)

The standards for her Episode VI costume can be found on this page, the page for alliance officer standards:

I hope this helps Amadalia

Thanks

I agree with Dawn, a great choice indeed Smile

I moved this topic to the Rebel Commanders Costumes section, here is a great place to find tutorials and references for her Episode VI costume Smile

Sometimes it can be a little confusing with Mon Mothma: her Episode 3 costume belongs under royalty/Senatorial, and her Episode 6 costume goes under Rebel Commanders Smile no worries, in this section you will find great resources for her Episode VI costume

The standard was recently revised. It's at the top of this forum.

Here's a handy link! http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=61807
