Padme Amidala Rainbow Lake Gown
This dress is modeled after Padme Amidala's Pastel Lake Gown in Episode II - Attack of the Clones.
Padme Amidala Rainbow Lake Gown Promo Picture
This dress is made from hand dyed ombre fabric. Yellow, pink, lilac, and light blue. It is a halter style dress with a plunging back. The sheer overlay is also hand dyed and edged with a satin type blanket binding. Front and back has a mother of pearl type shell decoration with satin ribbon gathering.
I hand make the necklace and arm bands from a form of plastic called styrene. It is cut, shaped, painted and edged. The painting is a faux style that looks like mother of pearl.
I will post pictures of the head bands soon. They are dyed purple with small seed beads hand sewn on.
A disclaimer; because this dress is hand dyed, there can be small imperfections due to the dye on the dress or sheer. I try to avoid this at all costs! ;)
This dress takes 6 - 8 weeks to custom sew.
If you are making this dress and have any questions, comments or need assistance, please email me and I would be happy to help!
