Description

I already uploaded Titania’s Gown, but I changed a lot, redid the bodice etc., so I thought I’d upload it again, as a new project.

It is another costume for my Midsummernight’s Dream movie, worn by Titania, the fairy queen. I chose an ancient greek style for Titania and her retinue.
For the pattern I altered one I found in burda magazine 11/07 and added the embroidery (which is done with gold cord) and the brooches on top of the shoulders.
I made the armrings as well, which is why they get their own picture ;-)
Also check out the entry in my blog for more pictures.
EDIT: I have added a picture I made for a calendar wearing this dress. I love photoshop! :)

By the way, you pretty much can’t put this dress on on your own and walking in it is pretty hard as well… I’m really not jealous of the girl who will be wearing it in the movie ;-)

Material Notes

taffeta in two shades of pink; white cotton (another layer of the skirt, so it isn’t see-through); pink cord for the lacing at the back; gold cord for the embroidery; two golden brooches; small golden bangles, golden pearls and little bells for the armrings
