When planning our trip to Disney World, I mentioned to the kids that sometimes people dress up as their favorite characters and showed them some pictures. Avery immediately shouted “I want to be Darth Vader!!”. Coming from a girl that plays with a 4ft tall Stormtrooper like it’s a doll (singing him lullabies and tucking him in for bed) this came as no surprise. I decided to take the challenge and come up with something that has a little bit of Disney Princess flair.
I purchased a black leotard and tutu from Amazon and created the below chest plate.
I used Dark T-shirt Transfers, printed the chest plate on a sheet, and ironed it on the leotard following the given directions (Note: It is not recommended to print on fabric that stretches like the leotard, however I was happy with the results).

The force is strong with this one…
Happy Star Wars Day! May the force be with you.

This is great. My daughter wants to be a darth vader princess and I was trying to make it myself. Thank you, you just made my life easier! Did you have to flip the image when printing it on the transfer paper?
Awesome! Glad you can use my design!… I’ve had to flip images in the past for LIGHT t-shirt transfer paper, but used DARK t-shirt transfer paper for this one and no flipping is needed. Hope that helps. Good luck with your project and thanks for stopping by my blog!
