Hello everybody!
I am planning to make Padme's Lake Gown and need some tips and help with it. I am looking to make most of it myself and want it to be as perfect as possible so I have some questions and was wondering if there's anyone out there willing to help? All input is welcome of course!
I am planning to buy a sheet of Mother or Pearl from ebay to make the necklace part but I am unsure if it is a normal Mother of Pearl I need or one with a gold colour to it. Anyone?

Looking at the reference photos, I think you would be ok with a normal mother of pearl. I think that some of the images where it looks a bit more gold is a reflection.

Mine has a thin line of gold edging - which also worked for softening the edges so they didnt scratch my neck.

I wrote a pretty detailed tutorial for this costume when I made mine - its in the Tutorials section here. And I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
