This Narnia Gown was inspired by the one worn by Susan Pevensie at her Coronation in the movie The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. My customer desired it to be made a little more wearable, thus the length was shortened a bit and the flowing sleeves are detachable for a different day time look…the neckline was also made slightly higher upon request.
Some of the fabrics used to make this gown were; a pretty light blue chenille velvet, (yes it looks like crushed panne velvet, but it is in fact chenille) the sleeves are made of a flowing periwinkle fabric that catches the light when viewed from different angles.
The front of the dress is accented with gold buttons that are encompassed with a scrolling flower design. Surrounding the neckline and sleeves is a hand beaded ribbon trim. I used ice blue Swarovski crystal beads and small gold seed beads to complete the trim design.
Thank you for reading!
