Hi Big World of the Internet!
I am planning to be Princess Leia for Halloween. Yes, I know it's late to start something like this. No, I don't need you to point that out.  Wink Can anyone suggest a sewing pattern for a jumpsuit/sci-fi-flight suit like this : http://surbrook.devermore.net/adaptationsmovie/starwars/leia.jpg ? I haven't been able to find anything online, but maybe one of you knows some source I don't? Hopefully this won't be too difficult. If I can't find a pattern at all I will probably recon a cheap sweatshirt and sweatpants. I will be wearing white, anyway, with my hair (yes, my hair, bulked out with fabric but still my hair  Grin) in a Princess Leia hairstyle, so hopefully I will be recognizable, but I still hope to come up with something a bit more authentic.
Any advice? Thanks in advance!

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy

Heehee, I know how it is when you leave things to the last minute. Personally, I thrive on last-minute deadlines...shows what kind of character you truly have. Tongue

But in answer to your question - the costume looks like a basic jumpsuit, which can then have all the little additions put on afterwards. The one pattern that I did find that might be suitable is this: http://www.kwiksew.com/catalog/cat_detail.cfm?pid=2175 - yeah, it's a pyjama pattern, but it does the same job as a jumpsuit. Alls you need to do it use a different fabric and modify it if needs be.

Good luck with the costume and I hope you post some pics of the finished product!! May the force be with you....Wink -x-

That's all there is and there ain't no more....
I craft, therefore I am.
