Silvery Blue Dress
This dress was inspired by Madalena’s wedding dress in the show “Galavant” and has a few qualities to it that remind me of early Renaissance gowns. I made it from materials I had around, which included five yards of a shiny “mystery” fabric and a matching brocade. I made it in about two weeks, and it was a really enjoyable project!
The bodice is princess seamed and trimmed with bias cut strips of matching material, it laces up the back with home made loops. The sleeves have two puffs on each side, these were gathered down and stitched on by hand. The skirt is a simple three paneled pattern which is pleated at the top.
I paired the dress with jewelry and a crown which I got on ebay.
I have three posts about making this costume, and one devoted to a photoshoot.
