Madame Pomfrey

Harry Potter Series

Last Updated: 02-18-2008

This costume was in progress for a loooooong time. I had the fabric sitting in my closet (dyed to the proper color and all) for about three years; I think it was originally planned for the PoA movie premiere after having seen her outfit in CoS. I designed and fitted the costume to be worn over a corset... However, I forgot to sew the darts in the bodice before the DH book release, so it was a bit.. well, baggy. This turned out to be a big benefit whent I discovered the lack of darts made it fit fairly well without a corset - which was great at Costume College '07 when I was recovering from food poisoning, and a corset was completely out of the question. ;);)

Overall, I'm fairly happy with the outfit, but, as usual, I'd love to rip the whole thing apart and sew it together in a better way. I'd like to line the sleeves, so you don't see the seam in those huge droopy bits, and the pseudo-bustle to the skirt didn't turn out the way I had hoped.. I think there's enough fabric in the hem to try and get more material to gather up in the back. I've yet to tackle her headdress thing, as it involves starch and architecture to recreate correctly, and I usually don't have that kind of time.. or patience. ;) Instead, I just put my hair up in a vaguely-1880s style and throw some pheasant and red feathers in the back.
