Blood red dress
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Last Updated: 10-14-2012
This dress is made in cooperation with a dear friend of mine. He has a passion for fashion design and has turned this talent into a career as tailor and costume designer.
The dress consists of two separate dresses which are sewn together at the neckline.
The underdress is made of midnight blue silk jersey, red paisley cotton fabric, red silk velvet and red taffeta. The pattern of the lower sleeves is a half circle, they are overlong and lined with red taffeta. The neckline and lower edge of the upper sleeves are decorated with a brass-colored beaded lace trim. At the neckline, the trim is underlaid with a facing of red paisley fabric. Due to the stretchy jersey, the dress doesn’t need any closure.
The sleeveless overdress is made of midnight blue silk velvet. The dress is just slightly fitted, so it doesn’t require any bust darts or other fitting seams. The neckline and shoulder straps are made of a band of red paisley cotton fabric. The gown is overlong, has a small train and closes in the back with an invisible zipper.
As accessory, I carry a leather covered edition of the book “Lord of the Rings” with me.
