The Completed Beru Lars Costume

I would have posted sooner, but my computer stopped working. Again. Anyways, here's some pictures of the completed Beru Lars plus a few others.

I also made my brothers Anakin (from episode I) costume.

We had some friends over. From left to right - Me as Beru, Micheal, my sister Alina as Endor Leia, Daniel as young Ani, and Ellie as Ahsoka Tano.

On the left to me in this picture is Jeri, Ellie and Michael's mom, who also dresses up as Beru.

Young Ani.

A collage of my costume. Although I didn't get the leather pouch, I did end up getting the belt and the perfect boots from going garage selling earlier in the morning.

Star Wars Day - May the 4th Be With You

Overall I think the whole thing turned out pretty good!

1860's Dress Inspiration

I've started making a toile for an 1860's day dress! I'm using patterns from Jean Hunnisette's book Costume for the Stage and Screen (1800-1909).

I really love this dress! The style is looks like it's very close to the pattern I'm using.

I never realized how much I'm drawn to blue dresses of this era. When I make the real deal it'll have to be blue!
