Arwen Undomiel

Rebeca - Spain

For the dress I chose a pattern that had a single layer, but I modified it to show two layers at the neckline.  The sleeves were created so that they fall past my knees.

Since I could not find velvet fabric, I looked for of another fabric  that had the drape and feel to give the same effect.  I chose to make the body of the dress in black since I could not find what I needed in dark blue.

The trim on the arms and on the neck are painted with gold and silver fabric paints to match the real trim as close as possible.   The gown is also decorated with Arwen Evenstar pendant, the butterfly clasp and the ring of Galadriel.

There are many more photos on my Web page:

Arwen's Angel Dress

Elinor - Maryland, USA

My 9-year old granddaughter has become a LOTR fanatic and wanted to be Arwen for Hallowe'en 2005. We tried to find fabric that seemed suitable to create the Angel dress. Her mother did find this wonderful brocade in lilac and color-matched a jersey polyester. We decided that Arwen probably has dresses in various colors that lilac could be one. I modified a simple pattern (See and Sew #B4099) to make the dress. The underdress was 45" so I was unable to cut the dress in one piece. The brocade was 60". I used a georgette that I cut in a triangle for the undersleeves.
