Nothing was spared in the months needed to source material, perfect cut-patterns, painstakingly custom dye and reproduce the intricate detail on what on the surface is a simple outfit compared to some of her other dresses.
Every layer worn on screen inside and out is replicated and includes the silk inner skirt, silk outer skirt, hand made leather pumps with the custom Coruscant curve in the 2" heel, the silk & cotton blouse with hand made, real metal armbands and stones inset and finally the genuine velvet vest with intricate, custom beadwork and embroidery. It takes a full day just to make the design on the front for a single vest. The care taken mimics the care that would have taken place on Naboo when made originally.
The reference material available was exhaustive and the expertise of the Lucasfilm archive staff invaluable in getting each detail correct, even the ones not visible on screen. The best materials have been used, and even the weight of the fabrics have been custom dyed and matched. Every textile was chosen with the utmost care to bring this amazing ensemble to you as it was worn on screen. Even the buttons, hook and loop and other closures needed by Natalie Portman to have the outfit look perfect have been reproduced and carefully placed to exactly replicate the ones used on screen.
