Zelda Twilight Princess Dress

I would really like to make Princess Zelda's dress from Twilight Princess, but I am not sure what to do. I am not sure how to make a pattern so the dress will pleat at the bottom. I would rather buy a pattern, but I can't find one that looks like the dress.

I was also wondering how the designs on the gloves and the bottom of the dress should be made. Are they embroidery, a different color fabric, paint?

So far, I have made the sash for the front of the dress by embroidering the design on felt. A picture of it is around the middle of this page:

I can't 100% help with the pattern part but I do know simplicity sells a ridiculous amount of dress patterns that you could use the top from one and the bottom for the other. I think I have two that would work but I'd have to dig through them and tell you which ones.

Personally for the designs, I would probably paint them on. It doesn't look like a second layer, nor like embroidery to me. That's just my personal preference though. :3

I'm redoing my Twilight Princess, but I painted mine on the dress I have.

Granted I didn't realize the dress wasn't that see through and so when I was painting, I was really freehanding it cause I couldn't see though the fabric. Don't let the photo fool you, it only looks see through cause of the flash >.>

For my Zelda: TP dress, I used this pattern :http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-...1#.UH35h6BmONU

I think I used C, chopped off the sleeves and made the neckline a little lower.

I painted the patterns on the bottom of the dress using this pattern: http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...0/ornament.jpg and for the gloves:http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...na-d47v1zy.png
If I wasn't so damn lazy I would of used embroidery but oh well

Good Luck ^^

Ooh that looks pretty cool with the gold outline. I wasn't sure what to do with it because it does seem to be mostly white.

I see what you mean, it does seem to be one layer. Painting makes it easier. I'll probably make a pattern to use as a stencil.
I was looking at simplicity patterns before, but I didn't see much floor length ones.
