Leia Bespin

This costume took about a year to complete. (Stared in April 2004 - Completed March 1, 2005.) The sleeveless jacket is made from silk chiffon that I hand-embroidered. It took me 9 months! The yoke is machine quilted, and also silk chiffon. The harem pants, tunic, and jacket lining are made primarily from polyester voile fabric that was purchased because it was the color I wanted! The shoes were custom dyed to match.

Here is the web page for my costume with my research and more photos:
