Hello from Beaverton
« on: March 14, 2018, 02:11:44 PM »
Hi, I'm Courtney. I live in the Portland area. I love sewing, constructing garments and Star Wars. I'm excited to bring my costuming to a whole other level and have some help with it. My first build is going to be Jyn Erso. I'm also planning to work on General Holdo, but finding the correct material for that may take some time.

Welcome! I've seen a few ladies working on Holdo who had success finding good fabric. Along with all of the resources available here and on the Legion forums, there are some great overall Star Wars costuming groups and costume-specific groups on Facebook. If that's something you're interested in, I can find and post some links for you.

I would appreciate any resources you can point me towards. My first version of the dress was constructed with the wrong fabric and  before I really understood the help available out there.
