It’s just a star wars thing we share.
Mr V got his wife-made shirt a few years ago using a vintage Vogue pattern. He loves his BBQ shirt and only wears it on special occasions, like today.
Yes he looks uncomfortable because I asked him to cross his arms. Some women are so pushy!
Two days ago I realised today is a Friday and I really wanted to wear my own Stormtrooper shirt.
So I grabbed McCalls 5433 and made my own Stormtrooper shirt to wear ‘business casual’.
Oh dear. That’s just us.
December brought us the next episode of Star Wars – The Last Jedi.
Last year Spotlight was getting rid of this classic Star Wars print.
I made this dress to watch the movie. We saw the movie before Christmas and we stayed in town that night.
I like wearing this dress because it has shape without feeling tight.
I used Burda 7111 that I picked up from a visit to Pitt Trading.
This pattern is designed for softer woven fabrics so using this Star Wars cotton fabric wasn’t the best choice for testing but I used it anyway.
As you can see here, I’ve since made this dress in a softer digital print remnant bought from Pitt Trading.
The dress sits much better with this softer fabric.
I washed my Star Wars dress and the colour from the neckline trim ran, so I made it again after also pre-washing the petersham tape. I no longer have this print in my stash and I’m happy with that outcome.
