Medieval dress I made from blue velvet and golden lace. It took around 10 hours to make it. Model: me.

Inspired by dresses from Lord of the Rings ;)

Lovely dress - I was wondering if you have a pattern you can share or recommend? I am inspired to make my own costume for a medieval carnival that I hope to attend next month but I am having a bit of trouble finding a good pattern...

 I don't use patterns, I was simply drawing shapes on the material with chalk out of my head (very inconvenient, but it sometimes works). I don't quite remember how it was like. Sorry.

hehhehehe, wow thanks a lot! :) Sewing velvet wasn't that bad, at least I remember it like that. Sleeves are the pain in the ass and I always have to pull them up, but they look pretty draped like that, so I got over it ;)

Such excellent work, truly. It's lovely; the color shade is just right, a nice dark royal blue.

Very pretty...10 hours for this dress was not that long. Wish I could sew.. I see that your the model... perhaps you should put a few photos of you in the stock section : ) Wish full thinking on my part. You would be the perfect model... perfect shaped face, eyes.

Thanks :). I considered using my photos for the stock, but currently I don't have a photographer. It's complicated to take them with timer, and it was pretty hard to even make this picture. Maybe some day :)

well... your sewing is great... maybe someday you can do stock. A lot of people would want to use it. I am not good with the camera at all. Taking a picture of anything. If I had to set a timer and get in front of the camera I would end up a big blur lol

yep, that is always a problem. It's always so blury. Then, the problems with background, where to put the camera when using timer...but I'll try it this summer at my grandma's house, she has a lots of rooms with white walls and a lot of light, maybe I can accomplish something.

Ovo je predivno...reci mi, koliko bi koštala jedna ovakva da se naruči?
Ja bi rado naučila kako se šiju haljine, ali nemam mašinu pa bi sve morala ručno..hoćeš li napravit kakav tutorijal za ovakve haljine?
Reply
:iconskinywitch:
skinywitch Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012
cijena zavisi od materijala, ali mislim da bi sve ukupno došlo nekih 70 KM...a što se šivanja tiče, mislim da se mogu naći tutorijali na internetu, npr ovaj: [link] Ako se odlučiš da sama šiješ, bilo bi dobro da nabaviš mašinu ili posudiš od nekoga, prenaporno je sve šiti na ruke jer stvarno ima puno posla oko takvih haljina

:D
Pregledala sam sve moguće tutorijale na netu, ali nijedan nije bio baš detaljan za početnicu kao što sam ja :/
Sumnjam da ću pokušat šta sašit jer bi mi bilo žao da upropastim neki lijep materijal..mislim da bi prije toga morala napravit nekoliko jednostavnijih kreacija ;)

da, probaj nešto laganije za početak, pa kad se uhodaš pređi na nešto teže ;)

The Dress is so beautiful as are you,
worthy of a place in Lord of the Rings
If I thought I could do a background to do you justice
I'd Manip you into one :)
