As mentioned earlier, I’ve been doing a lot of sewing lately since the COVID-19 outbreak. One of the projects I’ve had on the books is a Star Wars sheet dress for Star Wars Celebration later this year. However since it is uncertain if Celebration will happen or not, I decided to share my creation today for May the Fourth, a day that has kind of turned into an unofficial Star Wars holiday because of its similarity to the phrase “May the Force be with you.”
My dad mailed me my brother’s old Star Wars bedding a couple months ago, along with some of my own childhood bedding, so I have more sheets to make dresses from! I was really drawn to the warm colors of the Return of the Jedi set, and was immediately inspired by the image of Vader and the Red Guards as a perfect bodice front.
Also to celebrate May the Fourth, some of my other fashionable Star Wars loving friends were recently interviewed for Temple of Geek chic. You can read it here.
I hope everyone is staying safe, and sane, during this difficult time. It seems like sewing is the only thing keeping me sane! I’ve ordered more fabric, have a pattern to make Patrick some shirts, and thankfully our local fabric store has reopened with social-distancing conditions. I still have yet to venture out to it, because I thankfully don’t need anything at the moment, but it’s good to know it’s open if and when I need it, and that they are taking precautions to stay safe.
What is keeping you going during this wild time?
