princess leia costume 3T
Added Feb 6, 2009
My husband is a big Star Wars nerd, and insisted that the kids go as Princess Leia and Darth Vader. Darth didn’t turn out great, but try to keep a “Helmet” on a 3 week old, good luck! However, Princess Leia turned out super cute! It was my first Major attempt at anything on my machine, especially without a pattern or tutorial, but I was pleased with the results. I made her belt out of PVC, silver leafing in a tube, and Filo. I had to get super creative with that one! Of course my hubby was a stickler for realism, so it had to be PERFECT. I made the buns out of brown braided yarn, and then wrapped and tied them into buns and stuck a headband through them. they actually looked pretty good.
