The original garments:
an old red velvet outfit of my mom's, circa 2000. The dress was sleeveless with a knee length slit in the skirt, and had a jacket of the same material to go over it with 3/4 length sleeves and a clasp in the front. And yes, there were originally two sleeves.... I was so excited about this project that I seam ripped one whole sleeve off before I realized I needed to take a "before" pic. *grin*
First and foremost, Maid Marian's Wardobe from the BBC Robin Hood, season 1. Particularly these outfits:
....and Eowyn's green dress from Lord of the Rings:
The finished project:
p.s. the petti has stripes on it... they're very subtle, but they match a lot better than a plain white petti.
you can see the belt in this pic. Love it!
