Blue Battle/Varda Dress

JB/Steelweaver - Netherlands







The body of the dress is a heavily altered Simplicity 9103. I used the back as the front too since I needed a high neck and I'm pretty flat anyway. The sleeves and skirts I drafted myself. The 'underskirt' is different from the original, it is actually a pair of circle pants, extremely wide pants that resemble a circle skirt. I didn't make a whole underlayer, just the pants and sleeves.

I used synthetic stretch velvet for the outer layer and polyester heavy voile for the sleeves and underskirt. I was lucky enough to be able to use a friend's serger, and especially the narrow hem on the sleeves and skirts makes all the difference. The toggle shaped buttons aren't functional, I sewed up the front and left just a small slit to get my head in, which closes with snaps.

The belt has a base of cotton and fusible interfacing, with a gathered bit of the sleeve fabric sewn on. The 'buckle' is a belt fitting I found in a secondhand store and silverplated with plating polish. The actual closure is a lacing in the back. The circlet is made of 1mm silverplated wire and blue goldstone round and diamond shaped beads. It ties in the back with satin ribbon.

This is an amazingly comfortable costume to wear in spite of the poly fabric. I left small air holes under the arms for air circulation so it doesn't get too hot. It also has the advantage of the bigger sleeves falling away from your arms and staying out of your way.
