New added Padme Gown in my projects list!

Hello all!

I here concerning my plans for Padme gowns. I was afflicted that I can't make my three favourite gowns quickly(2-3 months).
In the list the new Padme gown which I plan to make in near October - November was added.

Padme Packing gown from Episode II

I already know, how to make this gown. I know where to get original fabrics, dyes in correct colours. I practised with patterns and have studied this gown up and down. It is necessary to wait only the moment when all will be ready for connection of fabrics, dyes and cutting of details of a costume. I well work with metal, therefore I will make excellent armbands for this gown. If after practice I will have parts or whole gowns - I am obligatory sell them to that, who requires them. About a wig and how to make him I will write separately.

Oh,I back with good news!

How long I didn't appear here. I ask to forgive me. I handed over session. Has received all the five in subjects and now I search for work for students. I have already solved how to begin my projects with replica costumes. Besides, if I find good fabrics, I will necessarily make photos and I will show them here. My camera isn't especially good (Konica Minolta which have laid off from produce), but quality of photos is enough for the screen. Now I have almost got a job. I need to update the "Irish" clothes - to buy new footwear and accessories for the Irish dance. To help friend with the Internet and further already to work over costumes. I sew well enough and if I will have any parts of costumes for sale, do not hesitate and write to me. With pleasure I will answer. The first days off of July come nearer, and it means that on the way the Russian convent on Star Wars - StarCon 10. It is anniversary and consequently there there should be many people in costumes, but unfortunately I have had no time to sew something. I will lay out photos from convent in journal and in the account on photobucket.com.

My plans on costumes

Time has come to understand with costumes which I plan to make in the near future. Well, we will begin with the approximate list of costumes for the summer:
1) Padme Loyalist Committee gown(Episode II)
It's my favourite gown of Padme from Episode II(on second part is Meadow Picnic). I should join the group order of a fabric for a coat on TFN board. I begin searches of a fabric for a dress, lining for a coat, internal sleeves of a dress and a lining for a dress.I should experiment with dyes for a coat and receive as much as possible identical colour, as on the original.To understand, how farthingale is made for a dress.

2)Aurra Sing costume(Commission)
Should start to do since August 2009.To find a good pattern for bodysuit and a fabric.To ask people who have made replicas of this costume about details.Plus,to make for the husband of customer a Jedi robe.

3) Re-made Meadow Picnic gown(Episode II)

This my next dress. Once for a long time I have made this dress, but it was not pleasant to me, as I have made it very bad(It was my first sewing attempt and SW costume). I have decided to alter it and to make almost, as the original. To begin searches of a fabric for a corset and a cape (eventually I can embroider it by hands). Order from MiraxThorn from TFN boards sequins for skirt and blouse.To make a corset pattern. To experiment with dyes for a skirt and a blouse.To make embroidery by hand on corset,skirt and blouse.To find good shoes,ribbons and ribbon for headband.

It's everything that I need to make initially.
