This dress makes me super happy. It’s a replica of this one (why is making replicas so much fun? and why am I so obsessed with Dear Creatures???) and I made it entirely without a pattern, which I’m pretty rusty at, which is why it’s sort of wrinkly in a few places. I’m choosing to ignore them.
I used to pretty much only make costume replicas from historical or fantasy films (mostly Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Star Wars with some Lemony Snicket and Stardust thrown in) but it was kind of a bummer because I had these gorgeous dresses that I pretty much never wore, except to the occasional ren faire or Comic-Con. Although there was one occasion where my best friend and I walked to the grocery store dressed as Arwen and Padme. No one stared at all. Not a one.
Anyway, the point is this was a fun project. And I’ve already worn it out once! (There was no staring.)
*Note to self: learn to focus properly, kthx.
