Amidala model: Myself and/or Shoul(not on DA on other forums)
Amidala dress made by: myself and Shoul
Story part 2
As 17 and 18 year-olds with little cash and little experience this was way over our heads. Yet, we were determined. Shoul had a keen eye for shapes and geometry. She carefully crafted the dress pattern herself. It was cut and sewn before I even knew she was working on it.
She also sketched out the embroidery that went down the front of the dress. Unfortunately, we could not afford to have that machined, nor did we know how to get the file into a computer, which might not have even been possible then. She cut out the pieces that would need the gold thread on them and got to work. Handing me a piece I looked at its sad spaced out stiches. She didn’t have the patience to embroider nicely. I took over that part and for roughly ten years would work on it on and off, as it took about 1 hour per inch(since I was watching TV at the same time).
In high school Shoul had taken the jewelry course with a most kind teacher who allowed her back to work on items despite being graduated. She created the top of the crown. We then found gold foil for the ears and thin craft metal sheets for the rest, but how to shape them was beyond me.
