Four-part outfit for "belly button" Barbie doll.
This is probably the most popular and reproduced
costume of Padmé Amidala's wardrobe. And I think the most
beautiful and "princess-like" .
- The wide skirt has 3 layers and is
gathered to the yoke. The upper, sheer layer is stisched with half strand of
a green floss, dotted with pearly white fabric colour and at last I
glued little transparent green hand-made sequins (puncher + green PET
bottle). The skirt fastens back with hook and eye.
- The upper layer of the chemise is also sheer and
decorated in the same way as the skirt. The puffed sleeves are very long, 3x
gathered at the wrist, at the elbow and at the
forearm. On the shoulder is one boxpleat and 2 knife pleats. The sleeves are
tied up with soft, narrow bands. The chemise fastens back with little snaps.
- The embroidered, strapless corset consists of nine
parts and is heavily interlined with a vlieseline,
lined and fastens back with 3 little snaps. The little roses are embroidered
with one strand of mouliné - a french knot and a
line of tiny stem stitches around. The headband is embelished in
the same way.
- The shawl is of a
crescent shape, is decorated with a green
stitching and pink and purple painted dots. I am lazy
person, of course, but I didn't
know how to successfully embroider hundreds of tiny roses on
the delicate fabric. The cape fastens with a little wire hook
The outfit includes the curly wig; the headband; the
detachable hairpieces in golden crocheted snoods and the white court shoes with
the golden painted soles.
