It's been a while since I finished my Leia Dress but since Corona forces me to stay at home I have time to show you a collection of the patterns and materials that I used for this project. I am not looking for a rebel legion approval, so a few parts may be off of the original dress.
Here are the pattern links that I used:

Here is a list of the materials that I used:
My choice for the fabric was not true to the original one but I wanted to use fabrics that I already got stocked home - cosplay is a expensive hobby you know! So my dress is out of a polyester fabric but I would recommend to go with a jersey for your dress.
Aluminium Sheet 0,8 mm for the flat metal pieces: https://www.obi.at/bleche/glattblech-natur-120-mm-x-1000-mm-x-0-8-mm/p/2629343
For the round metal pieces: (long waiting period)
For the belt itself i used a white faux leather that I already got home. I think you can use any type of leather, as long as it doesn't have any heavy texture.
The shoes were delieverd very fast and they are very comfortable but to thight around the calves. I just cut it a few centimeters apart and closed the edges with my sewing machine.
I am lucky enough to have brown hair like Carrie Fisher did so I only have to use extensions. I kid you not - I did not expected that making this hairstyle would be so difficult. I can honestly only suggest to go through the different Youtube Tutorials and choose which one is the best for you. These are the extensions that I am using:
Also a very awesome game changer for styling your hair are these spiral bobby pins. You just screw a few of them into your buns and the hair is fixed. I love them so much.
