Lately I’ve been sewing. I’ve had this project all lined up for awhile, but I finally just pulled it out and really started working on it.
I am making a medieval dress loosely based on Susan’s Coronation Gown from the Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. You can see a picture of it here.
The body of my dress is going to be an off-white crushed velvet, and the bottom part of the sleeves is going to be a light periwinkle blue shantung. It is going to have those big, sweeping sleeves, which I am so excited about.
I have all the pieces cut out, except the interfacing because I didn’t have enough. I am glad that the cutting is all done. Now I can get to the sewing!
This is the view I’m making – the pattern is McCall’s 4491
