These are actually four dresses, but the pattern is roughly the same, so I’ll just put them together. :-)
The green and the yellow one are mine (based on owyns green gown and coronation gown), the other two I made for my friends (based on elvish gowns).

Material Notes

Oh, if I only remembered… Mostly cotton I guess ;-)

    after the tunic I had to check out more of your work. These are amazing. You have a knack for this type of garb. These are amazing, I’m partial to the green and yellow ones.

    I agree. I wish people still dressed like this. Well I could do with out some of the things they had to endure. But I really like this style of dress. Its really elegant. The ren fest is the best time of the year. And these dresses are beautiful. I really like the red one but all of them are amazing.

      I don’t see why you can’t just wear them out and about – maxi dresses are in fashion at the moment after all :P ! Besides, the style is so simple and elegant that I don’t think they’ll ever look truly dated. I think the big sleeves would drive me nuts in daily life – gorgeous as they are – but I often wear floor-length gowns.
