Gryffindor Dress!

Added Jul 15, 2009

by jessyratfink

Oakland, Califor...






I made this dress to wear to the midnight premiere of Half Blood Prince. I wanted people to recognize that I was a HP fan, but I didn’t want to wear a boring robe or school uniform. Most everyone knew, especially when they saw the back, where I embroidered “Weasley”.

Yes. I love Ron. I can’t help it.

Material Notes

Red and gold cotton, and red embroidery floss.




Garment Type
Beach, Casual

    This is so cute and such a great idea! I have no idea why I didn’t think of it for the opening here… Anywho, the dress is so cute and it looks well put together!

    I LOVE this.

    For the premier I wore a shirt that said ‘What would Dumbledore do?’ =]

    I’ll definitely be wearing it again! I might do a slip under it though – bit worried about daytime wear. The cotton was a bit thinner than I thought. :P
