Padme Cut Senate - Hoopskirt by Verdaera Padme Cut Senate - Hoopskirt by Verdaera
This is the hoopskirt for my Padme Cut Senate Scene Gown. (Original: [link] ) This gown was in the movie Star Wars: Episode II but was ultimately cut from the movie. The gown is based on Elizabethan/Tudor lines, but the hoopskirt is based more on mid-victorian. Elizabethan hoopskirts were more conical with a bumroll, this skirt is a little more flat in front with a bit of a bustle on the back. I wanted the front to be as smooth as possible, so I quilted muslin, and I threw a Naboo design in the front for funsies. I put ruffles along the rest to soften the lines of the hoops and hopefully be cooler temp-wise than quilting. It has adjustable ties on the inside so I can control the bustle height, and it has pockets in it as well.

Just fantastic, I love all the work you put into costume undergarments - and the little Naboo touches :)

This looks great! It's cool to see it with the corset, too, because then you can see that it really makes for a nice, smooth line down the front.

Did you stiffen the ruffles with starch at all? I think I might've read somewhere that that was a period technique used to give the skirts even more volume, but I can't remember... :/

Thanks!

Actually no, just plain muslin, and the ones on the bustle that are more ruffly are just super concentrated. Most of the skirt ruffles are double the length I put them on and the bustle ones are tighter.

Thanks!

Well, getting the hoops balanced was a bitch! I know there has to be some easier way to do this with math! The ruffle part was pretty easy though, just tedious.
