Mother Confessor Dress
Legend of the Seeker
Last Updated: 08-24-2011
The Mother Confessor: Kahlan Amnell. A legend in her own right from The Sword of Truth book series was brought to life by ABC studios in Legend of the Seeker. I am a fan of the accurate episodes from the first season and I was bewitched by the style of the Confessors dresses; both black and white.
The costume started with the idea of the black underlayers. I made the skirt from black satin and the bust piece from a black satin bra. The corset is faux leather and was purchased from limebarb.com.
All of the detailing seen around the bust, straps and on the waist of the black underlayers is fimo clay painted with silver enamel paint. The detailing on the dress sleeves is purchased silver trim. I went for the same style of trim bundling that I used on my Arwen "Requiem" dress.
The dress itself is a sleek and basic design. I sewed white flex velvet into the pattern of a hooded dress and altered the sleeves. The front and back slit edges were hemmed, lined with an eyelet-like trim and bound together with white satin cord.
I am well aware that in the TV series Kahlan dual wields daggers but I was unable to get two matching daggers so I have my model, Larissa, dual-wielding a longsword and a dagger.
