Description

This is my latest addition to my owyn-gown-collection for Ring*Con 08.

A lot of people there own this costume, but I wanted to do it better :-P

So all of the embroidery is done by hand which took months to finish (especially because the embroidery is on the leather…).

But the end result was definitely worth it! :-D

The pattern is an altered Mc Call’s one (M4492), the pattern for the corset I drafted myself.

Material Notes

The white fabric of the gown is a simple cotton fabric, the vest is made out of dark brown veltet and the corset is a brown suede

    I am inspired…maybe I have just never seen it done, but embroidering leather is amazing and brilliant….and very beautiful!

    This one is my favorite! All the handwork is just beautiful and your right, well worth it for the look!

    The whole costume is gorgeous, but that embroidery is breath-taking!
