Elven Grove, Part 15

Here we feature even more costumes from our folks who have recreated some of the wonders of the Elven folks.

Work here represents recreations at all skill levels.

Picture hyperlinks will open to more details about the costumes.

Arwen's Mourning Gown

Kathy S. (Kay Dee) - California, USA

I was inspired to recreate this stunning gown after seeing it on display at FIDM and Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills, CA. I used 11 yards of navy blue silk velvet, navy blue habotai silk lining, and scarlet red sueded charmeuse silk for the belt and neck inset. After a long search I found the original gold buttons used on the costume, and I opted to use a bullion embroidered border cut from a red sari for the sleeve and neck trim (adding my own beading, and additional gold bullion loops to fill out the design).

PATTERNS USED: I heavily modified Simplicity 9103 for the bodice, McCall's 3109 for the skirt, and I drafted my own sleeves using McCall's 3663 (View B) and Simplicity 9891 as a starting point.

Additional photos, research and construction notes can be seen at my web site.

Elven Dress


Rather than do a tribute costume (I don't like to follow the norm) I tried to make my own vision of the character's costume. i.e. if you were to look into Eowyn's closet, what other dresses would be in there besides the ones seen in the movie?

So here is a picture of an elven dress I made. It is color saturated film, so the color is very bright...same with my hair (which is NOT a wig...all mine!) The second is of me and my husband.



Arwen Undómiel's Ceremonial Gown

animechicky - Massachusetts, USA
Patterns: Dress- alteration of simplicity 9891 Sleeves- personally designed pattern
Fabrics: dress fabric was a gift and the sleeves were a empress cut costume from a dance performance a couple years back. So I couldn't tell you what the fabric is exactly.
Building notes: I used two types of trim on the arm bands and hemming it myself was really annoying but not terribly hard.

Elven Dress

Charlotte - England, United Kingdom

It is inspired from Arwen Evenstar in LOTR; I like the way her sleeves are made. This pattern was inspired by McCalls pattern 4378; I made some alterations- thanks soooo much Jane in C & H fabrics for your advice- certainly paid off!

Material/accessories used:-

Gold Organza, Cream Calico, Purple Machine Dye, Gold dressing gown cord decorative braid for sleeves and neck

Knitted Pullovers

Kerstin - Germany

She's being practical and has designed tops.  Click the pic for even more pullovers based on LOTR Gowns.


Arwen's Chase Dress

April - New Zealand

Ability: Novice. I haven't sewn since primary school 'home economics' classes! Pattern:  Simplicity 9891

Notes:  Completed in June 2003, this costume was the most challenging and frustrating thing I have ever made with my own hands ... but definitely worth it.  Especially when being complimented on it by Ben Wootten, LOTR designer and sculptor, at the Return of the Ringers Party in Wellington, December 2003!
