Princess Leia

On Saturday, my youngest went to a Star Wars theme birthday party. Fortunately, on Friday afternoon, she willingly gave up her first choice character, Padme Amidala, and agreed to be Princess Leia. This is far from the ideal time for me to fit in costume making, but a Leia gown can be whipped up quickly. A trip to the costume store confirmed that their offers were hideous, ill-fitting and relatively expensive. Another stop at the fabric store... et voila!

Leia wore her gown 3 days in a row and tells me she plans to wear it for Halloween as long as I go as Han (Hana) Solo. Deal!
