Finally, I have some pictures of me in my Arwen Coronation gown!!!!!! This is the same basic pattern as the Blood Red gown and the Requiem gown. I finished this back in May, but I didn't get around to actually taking the pictures until this weekend. As you might be able to tell, this is my longest gown yet!!!!! I still have some leftover fabric too, which I should do something with....but it's not much.
This fabric was only $3 a yard from JoAnn's!!!! I couldn't believe it when I saw it - it was the perfect color, and a great price!!! I got it a few years ago, and finally made it. The bead trim for the sleeves and neckline is something I bought, but I put so many more white (and green) beads on it, it hardly looks the same as before. I didn't make the headdress or the banner, but I did dress up the banner with some silk flowers. I had a lot of fun with this photoshoot, although it was one of the hottest days of the entire summer so far....Anyway, hope you like it!!!!!!!
