Medieval dress for Volks SD16 body. My customer asked me to use Mirror Witch'swedding gown from Brothers Grimm movie.
All laces are hand sewn onto the garment, and a thinner lace is adorned with tiny pearl seed beads, on both the front of the dress and the sleeves.
The sleeves consist of the inner narrow sleeve and the outer wide sleeve, while the outer sleeve is attached to the hemline with a thin lurex thread and nothing more. It’s very medieval, as the sleeves were a separate parts of the garment and were sewed by the maids each time the gown was put on. Yes, each morning! As the fabrics costed a lot and the pieces were generously adorned with a precious gems ladies often had a several sleeves sets to one dress, as that allowed them to save on their expenses.
