|Attempting to make a Medieval dress ..for my lovely wife to wear to the Medieval Banquet at Coomb Abbey at the end of March. (I will be going as Edmund Blackadder). So basically Ive got a week left to make two costumes! Ummm cosplay as usual then. ^^|
I will stick wip in the journal. This is the dress P liked out of all the ones we looked at. But the pattern was in Australia or somewhere far away like that. So I said I could make it without a pattern. 8I
So here goes..can I knock this out in a week and have Blackadder ready too? I Hope so.
why!? (Posted 28th March 2012)
I made a pattern to fit the dress form lovely..Why then was it off by miles when I got my wife to test wear it. ¬_¬ So after pulling it apart and sewing extra bits on everywhere it looks like a patchwork quilt. But finally it fits. (why did you let me down o dress form!) I hope to goodness the skirt part goes a lot easier.

Pattern making under way.
Got some nice quality Red velvet for the dress. Totally lucked out trying to find some Gold fabric for a contrasting front panel though. So the plan is to go with a sash belt idea instead. I did find Gold trim ..after lots of searching. So dress under way...
