Queen Amidala Black Invasion Gown

About: Hello I am a costumer who loves doing charity work with the Starwars costuming group the 501st. I love sewing my own costumes and take great pride in recreating costumes that look identical to the originals.

This amazing gown as seen the Starwars Episode 1 was quite a challenge to recreate. I originally started on the dress thinking it would be an easy task. Little did I know Id end up having to sew the dress in its entirety from scratch including the material.
