Los Angeles, Cal...
I made myself this dress as a birthday present. Unfortunately, its slightly bridal air (long, white) makes it impractical for everyday wear. But that’s okay, because it makes me happy to flounce around the house in it!
The fabric was ordered online; when I saw it I was immediately reminded of The Lord of the Rings, especially Eowyn’s white gown. With that as the vague inspiration, I started with Simplicity 8722, a vintage maxi dress pattern, but ended up taking in the sides a lot to get the look I wanted. I was barely able to squeeze this dress out of 1.5 yards of fabric, but just managed to do it after modifying the sleeves to take up less fabric.
