I love Halloween simply because I get to sew crazy costumes that I would otherwise wear. This year I dressed up as Princess Leia, I tried to make it as authentic looking as possible using The Padawan’s Guide. I think it needed more volume though, so I’ll probably alter it because my sister has already called dibs on wearing it next year. The only Princess Leia patterns I found were out of print, so I used McCalls 2060 as a base.
