Leia's white 'A New Hope' gown

Well, now that I have the Leia wig, I was thinking I really need the white gown to go with it. There is a great website that has general instructions on how to make the gown. Included are great instructions on making the belt too. Another website shows how the hood is attached to the gown.

It would be fantastic if there were a whole slew of Leia’s across the globe this Halloween. Megan from Not Martha pointed me to an event that happened in San Francisco a few years ago. Too bad I missed out!

Knit Pattern: The Leia Wig

The inspiration for this pattern came to me one day while shopping in a sporting goods store. I saw this fabulous full length white down coat that reminded me of a Princess Leia outfit. I thought, wow, now that would look great with a knitted ‘wig’ hat. And so, Leia was born.
