This was my forest nymph costume for the Elf Fantasy Fair 2008. The skirt has a cut-off synthetic wedding dress with lots of petticoat as a base on which I’ve sewn countless leaves which were individually cut out of fabric. (the whole thing took me about 6 months as I also made all the accesories and the hair)
Leaves – interfacing (to prevent fraying), lots of forest coloured materials (polycotton, lining, satin, silk, suede, velvet, lots of left-over fabric i dont know the name of)
Sleeves & Cape – Fleece and organza
Corset – silk (i didnt make this though, dont have the pattern!)
I have to give credit to both Nada and Marianne for helping me with the sleeves!
