Star Wars Scroll Dress: A New Hope in vintage party attire

I love petticoats and hoop skirts and the Star Wars opening crawl was the perfect shape for a vintage party dress. With the help of an amazing graphic designer, Mrs. Jennifer Fox of Camden, TN and Spoonflower, who custom printed the fabric, this dress became a reality.  Lots of fabric draping and measuring was involved to get the correct placement.The fabric looked like this when it arrived:
