Sleepy Hollow Peach

Peach gown from ‘Sleepy Hollow’ (In progress, that’s why the below shown navigation doesn’t completely work yet) One (though not the only) dress that I found interesting (though not most) since seeing the movie was this one here: Various pictures of the peach dress from Sleepy Hollow as worn by Katrina van Tassel / Christina […]

Planning

Note: In case you’re looking for a good fabric to make this dress, have a look at this fabric on Spoonflower. It’s not perfect – after all, it’s all printed and therefore doesn’t have the ‘velvet stripes’ – but at least it has the correct width of the stripes (approximately 1/2 inch) and is black […]

‘Water’ gown

~Please also have a look at my other Star Wars costume reproductions! ~ Padmé Amidala’s “Water” gown from “Star Wars”, Episode 3 or: A crossover of several, not-at-all everyday movie costumes can result in an everyday dress I *so* fell in love with that gown – but as always, I of course had absolutely no […]

Star Wars Episode 2 – Dormé Travel

~Please also have a look at my other Star Wars costume reproductions! ~ Now – I must admit that I didn’t even remotely notice this costume in the movie. I didn’t even remember anyone being in this scene except Anakin Obi-Wan and Padmé (whose dress from this particular scene I’m describing and making on the […]

Eragon-Arya’s Armor

The asymmetric, tight fitting construction simply caught me by my costumer’s honor, and as I needed a somewhat ‘everyday-fitting’ outfit anyway, and as black leather is my favorite kind of material for everyday […]

Robe à la Française

Mission name: The Marie Antoinette gown, as I’m currently totally inspired by that upcoming movie Mission name 2: ‘The non-eyesoringcolor-combination Française’ (because a friend of mine, when he phoned me and I told him about making a Française in green and red, he said ‘Ouch! That must be eyesoring!” – No, my friend, it’s not. […]

Marie-Antoinette Tricorn

Historically, this is a slightly wrong-shaped Caraco worn with a non-quilted petticoat over ruchings-decorated short paniers. The seams at the front, which probably result from changing a pattern that originally had a stomacher to one that doesn’t, […]

Star Wars Peacock

Navigation for this part of the page:  Padmé Amidala’s “Peacock” gown from “Star Wars”, Episode 3 I have no idea how to explain why I want that gown without making it look as if I would simply jump from the ‘Lord of the Rings’ costuming fandom to Star Wars. I don’t want anyone to believe […]
