"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!"

Good cosplay reference for details you can't see in the movie. Super curious about what was used for the skirt. Like what kind of petticoat or crinoline.

Judging by the width of the skirts, I'd say its based on the 1870 style crinolines. Some of those can get quite wide. An interesting fact that I found while doing research for school is that some manors had to have enlarged doorways for some of the skirts. Also ladies needed to sit on ottomans while dining. I hope this helps.

PLEEAASE tell me how you do this, you are an AMAZINGLY TALENTED AWESOME X infinity seamstress. Lillyxandra, please reply back and let me know how you make something like this. I am an amateur at sewing and I love cosplay and costuming, I am such a big fan of your work,  i hope you have some tips that can be used within a tight budget, I'm a little broke since I mow lawns in the summer. But thanks to this Wisconsin weather, my budget has been low. :( it has been so cold.

It is stunning! I love the way you combined your idea with original design without loosing it's charm. Really just a few people can do that. "Labyrinth" is one of my beloved films and this dress has it's spirit inside.
