Eowyn's Shieldmaiden Dress

The dress is made up of three parts, a chemise, vest and corset. The chemise is made of paisley silk jacquard from and lined with cotton voile.

The vest is made of cotton velvet from and lined with cotton sateen. The trim (on both the vest and corset) comes from . The pattern was meant for stretch fabrics, but was fine once I added a zipper.



Katherine C-G  - USA

Pattern: I used the same Rocking Horse Farm pattern that I used for my Refugee dress for a starting point for the bodice. I altered it beyond recognition though, any scoop neck pullover top should work.

To make the keyhole shape I just cut a narrow V in the neckline. The skirt is a circle skirt made with extra fabric in the center which I pleated to the bottom of the bodice. I drafted the sleeves myself.  Once I was happy with the sleeve cap I extended the edges to a sort of triangular shape 55" long (I'm 5"1, so almost my height!)

The vest is made from Simplicity 9888.

I drafted the corset myself. There are detailed instructions on how to do it on my site. Like the vest, it's made of cotton velvet and interlined in cotton sateen. It's lined in cotton twill. The front part is quilted with one-inch square diamonds. It's lightly boned with spiral boning in the front and side, and artificial whalebone on the center backs.

Eowyn's Refugee Outfit

Materials: For the surcoat I used 5.5 oz Mahogany Brown linen from I used bubble gauze from dyed with their sky blue dye for the underdress.

Pattern: I used the Rocking Horse Farm Sideless Gown pattern for both the surcoat and underdress. This pattern worked with very few alterations (except for sizing of course! This pattern runs HUGE! I had to take 6" out of the surcoat neckline to get it to fit).

 Katherine C-G  - USA




The alterations I made to the pattern were lowering both necklines and making the side scoop a little deeper. I didn't line either piece and used self bias tape on the necklines and hemmed the side openings instead.

Instead of sewing the sleeves all the way down, I left the seams open under the elbow and laced them. This makes it possible to have a tight sleeve when it's down and when it's unlaced, it rolls up easily. The eyelets in the sleeves and in the surcoat are hand sewn, so they're practically invisible.

This was a very easy dress to make, I think it would be a great start for a beginner.
