My reproduction of Christine Daae's Dress from the Phantom of the Opera show!
The fabric is a reproduction (oh my god it was so expensive T_T) the train is super heavy, and I had to handsew many many things! I can't wait to wear it at Garnier in July :D
It's worn over a bustle, the same as my red Tournure.

Disney Princess Jasmine Costume for Traci Hines (www.tracihines.com) . Keeping it more realistic using fabrics like silk and lace encrusted with crystals and gems like a real princess would wear! The silk has a slight gradient to a darker teal at the bottom. Flowery lace vine grow up from the bottom of the pant leg. Jasmine has a bit of sensuality to her and I wanted to enhance that by adding a slit that lace up at the sides of the hips. I think it bring attention to a beautiful part of the body that usually is not revealed added to her exoticness.

This Pink Ball Gown is for Traci Hines "Part of Your World" Music Video. [link]. For the pink gown Traci stressed that she wanted it to look more like a period gown, so I pulled from all my favorite era’s of fashion. I designed the corset from the Edwardian era, with a pigeon chest and a small waist. The sleeves are slash and puff sleeves from the Renaissance and Tudor period. The skirt is more of the Rococo era with hip panniers and a bustled back. Traci chose her favorite fabric and trims to make it all happen! I wanted to make sure that this costume didn’t look like a “cosplay” costume. If you remember the scene where she gets the gown, she did not have someone make it for her, they most likely had it in one of the royal closets so she could borrow it. "TracPerhaps it was one of Eric’s Mother’s dresses? Instead of using pure whites, I used antique colors like champagne to replace the whites.
Making the dress was truly magical! It came together in two days! I had the help of Katie Mitchell dying trims, finishing hems, and cutting fabric for me. Traci was on details, sewing pearls and gluing rhinestones. Even our director Raiya was making trips to the fabric district to pick up notions to finish the gown! We were like the little mice in Cinderella, working to make a princess gown! After it came together we were all relieved to see that it had turned out beautifully. (we were shooting it the next day).

"This gown was created for one of my friends who had wanted Sarah's dress from Labyrinth since she was a little girl, and wanted to have the perfect gown to wear to the The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Balll this summer. While honoring the beautiful shape and the color scheme (white dress with yellow detailing in the center of the corset) of the original dress, I modernized the look a bit by using heavier fabrics like satin, brocade, crushed satin, and embroidered lace, and by making the puffed sleeves slightly smaller. This dress was an excited project for me, not only because I made a dream come true for a dear friend, but because it was my very first commission!"

This dress is made of ivory lace, light beige lining and a lot of vintage nude lace trim. The pattern of the bodice is derived from a 1867 victorian pattern, adjusted to own design. The whole look is inspired more by Edwardian/ art Nouveau evening wear :)

I just completed this really fun Venetian gown! The fabric is silk, and it's hot pink shot with blue, so it appears purple - different shades at different angles. This is based on late 16th century fashion. I made the cutwork sleeves for another gown, so I'm giving them another use here.

I recently completed this gown! It's based on 16th century Flemish working class fashion. The outer gown is made of wool and lined in linen. The kirtle underneath is linen, and the sleeves are linen. There are also two partlets and an apron, which don't have to be worn at once all the time. Underneath everything goes a chemise.

And here it is, the real thing, based on this design: [link]

Shew! I've been working on this for months, not to mention making another one on commission.

So, the breakdown.
The lavender layer has a fully boned underbodice, based on the laurel dress from Patterns of Fashion. I drafted the skirt pattern myself. It's basically a wedge in the front and half an oval in the back. That train is magnificent (and hell to hem)!

The purple lace can come off (it's tacked on). That was my lucky find at the fabric store! Such a lovely color.

The black net I did in one night. It's very simple rectangle shapes, different than what I'd originally planned but still effective.

The belt is actually an antique that my Gram gave me, I don't really know how old it is or who it belonged to, but I love it.

Aaand I made the corsage too. Don't you love my feather?

They've been done for months, but it took me this long to put up the picture. Here they are, my labor of love, my stays.

They're based on the Diderot pattern, which is only 2 pattern pieces and then straps. I based my pattern from this website: [link] It was VERY helpful!

The outside is some mysterious taffeta that I think was a dress at one time. The innermost layer is an old sheet. The two core layers are some heavyweight linen that's printed with the ugliest 60's squares ever. Perfect for hiding in a corset!

I handsewed the ENTIRE thing. So while it's not historically accurate in composition, it's pretty there in construction. The bones are heavy duty zip ties! I'd been reading what people had to say about this and decided to try it. It worked wonderfully!

I learned a whole lot from this project. Thanks to everyone around the internet whose projects I scoured for information; I couldn't have done it without you!

This is my graduation dress. Sadly nobody really got to see it because of how I had a robe on over, but oh well!

The bodice is based on Simplicity 4070. I cut the back panel larger and as one piece for the smocking. I did the pintucks before cutting the front, and that worked out quite well. The whole thing is lined in muslin, and there are pockets which are accidentally tiny. (I've never made pockets before!)

So that's about it, it's a pretty simple dress, really. I hope to be able to wear it again lots of times!

Let's call this "Mid Victorian ballgown with a twist" as well, it's not really mid victorian but it's not even romantic...it's sort of a mixture of the details I like most of both eras XD
I made this dress for the first Victorian Ball held in Monza and hosted by the very talented girls of Italian Victorian and Romantic Revival group:heart: they organize the best events! And are so nice :)
I only managed to finish all the details yesterday when the ball was....in April. Yeah. As you can imagine I wore it in a very sketch-y state XD originally I planned on making a replica of "Il Gattopardo"'s famous ballgown, but then I was proposed my new job and time got tight so I opted for a simpler gown^^ I intended to make more than one flounce on the skirt but I ran out of fabric and couldn't find the same colour again...and well like for blacks, you don't really mix different whites ==;;
The base of the dress is (very cheap XD) white satin used on the opaque side, with an overlayer of transparent white voile and details of bridal lace for the bust (by the way, the 20cm of this lace were as expensive as ALL the rest of the fabric. I do crazy things in life.). All the pearls and red crystals scattered all around the dress without an image were hand stitched by yours truly :) I don't really like to hand stitch beads but one of my next projects requires A LOT of hand beading so I thought I could start to get accustomed to it XD
I really love white&red together but I never tried it, so I thought it would be a nice change for once...and I do like the result :) even if my favourite bart is the lacing in the back and you can't really see it that much XD
Pattern for the bodice is from "Patterns of Time 1790-1880", took a bit to resize but was worth it :D

:EDIT 27/06/2013: I FINALLY managed to take better pictures of this costume that is, by the way, one of my all-time favourites:heart: the background is still exceptionally sad, I apologize =_=;; There's an amazing view of my new city from the rooftop of the building I moved in but I've yet to try and drag Hisoka (my mannequin) up 4 floors to try the light...so yes, for a bit my balcony wall will have to do XD
These are the EFFECTIVE COLOURS of the gown. If you've seen the previous picture I had up you can figure out how colour-alterated it was...:

I LOVED Hamburg's cast for "Tanz der Vampire"!! Beautiful music, scenes, costumes and obviously cast!! I was moved to tears^^
And well, being a costume freak (XD) I just couldn't resist making Sarah's ballgown :)
I made some changes in the design: first of all the skirt is longer (hence the final voile part was missing in the original one), and I made the organza overskirt shorter thank the original. Oh, and the lace on the bust is shorter. Personal taste^^
Original design can be found here [link] (poor picture, I know. It's the best I could find ><)

I got this picture from the Carnival that for some reason I REALLY like (even if you can't see the costume that well) and decided to post it :D

So this is my Kaiserin Elisabeth's Hungarian coronation gown replica, coming from the german musical & Takarazuka's 2002 production's scene "wenn ich tanzen will" :heart:
That's absolutely my favourite song from the musical, I love it SO much >w< I even know it by heart in german...and I don't speak german^^;

At first I wanted to make a replica of the original gown, but lace is just SO expensive and couldn't afford it ;_; so I mixed the german and Takarazuka dress designs and came out with this :D One day I'll make a replica of the original gown, really ><

This gown was made out a double weave taffeta, so it looks like two different colors. The train is a crinkled light satin.
Lots of silk and fabric flowers over the top of the bustle. The entire dress is completely embroidered with flowers and vines.
Worn over a four hoop skirt petticoat.

THIS IS NOT A STOCK PHOTO.

This gown is made out of embroidered and woven silk, striped woven cotton and velvet with some polyester lacing and brass grommets.

The top is fully boned and laces on the sides and back, allowing for full adjustment for a good fit. The skirt is not attached, but has a solid waistband that sits underneath the edge of the top.
The grommets are not period accurate, but they will make the dress hold up to heavy wearing without having to do repairs on the stitched holes that would be there. For more authenticity, they can be covered up by tatting or satin stitching.

Shoulder pieces are laced and can be tied in several ways. They can be worn over the shoulder, off the shoulder, or folded in half and tied to the sleeves so there is no over shoulder piece visible at all. Sleeves are fully detachable, with inside ribbon ties for adjustment.

Chemise with an off white cotton eyelet.

I forgot to take a picture of the matching headdress.

Made for :iconmandilily1013: Hope you love it. :heart: :heart:
