Costume Information

Description
Character: Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere
Costume made by: Speckles

Info:
My first ever gown costume I have sewn!
Got a few improvements I would like to make in the future.

Improvements:
- new earpieces
- boning in front bodice
- line bodice
- Add better fixtures for the gown additional layers (they're always safety pinned!)

Construction notes:
The black material is a heavy duchess satin, the royal blue fabric is a silk satin (so pricey!) and the light blue drapery is the cheapest satin I could find, using the back side since it was less shiny. Made a quick petticoat gathering 10m of tulle onto an elastic band. Hoop skirt purchased from angel's bridal on eBay.
