Star Wars Paper Jewelry

Since everyone is Star Wars crazy this week, I think I should post the Star Wars themed things I have made. These were for Celebration Europe in Essen, Germany.
Since this convention took place in Germany, I felt like I should combine German cultural kitsch with Star Wars and made a Star Wars Dirndl and matching jewelry.

Star Wars Dirndl

Since everyone is Star Wars crazy this week, I think I should post the Star Wars themed things I have made. These were for Celebration Europe in Essen, Germany.
Since this convention took place in Germany, I felt like I should combine German cultural kitsch with Star Wars and made a Star Wars Dirndl and matching jewelry.

First, I made a pattern of my favorite Dirndl dress by tracing the pieces...




Then I cut out patterns of the fabric and stitched them as "appliqué" onto the apron.

I decided to make my own "TIE Cockpit" buttons by covering old buttons with fabric.


 I made my own ribbon - ruffles by sewing two colors together.




Voilà! The Star Wars dirndl in action…
