Susan’s Green Archery Dress
This costume was inspired by the gown worn by Susan in the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Susan receives this gown while in Aslan’s Camp…. She often wears it with her leather belt and cape.
The Over Dress is made of a pretty dark green wool blend fabric that adds a nice drape and swish to the dress and is accented with hand sewn embroidery, slashed sleeves and eyelets laced with a small leather cord at the neckline.
The dress is fitted with princess seams that flow out in a full skirt that gives freedom of movement and elegance at the same time.
Please note that this fabric is actually very close to the movie color, if I had taken the pictures outside on a sunny day it would have had the movie effect, but the day I did the pictures it was very snowy and wet.
Below are a few images of the sleeve embroidery:
The Under Dress is made of a silky cream fabric that feels very smooth and nice under the outer dress. Sleeves are laced at the high cuff for a close fit, perfect for doing archery. The back is closed with an invisible zipper and is fitted with rows of princess seams that flow out into a full skirt.
