About the zelda thing....

The white dress reminds me of Eowyn's white wool dress in the Two Towers. (www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/Human/Eowyn/Wool.htm
http://www.koshka-the-cat.com ) But I am not concerned with an exact replica. For one thing, the bliaut 2 piece bodice construction with only shaping in the side seams doesn't work for me. So I am going to unashamedly make this with princess seams (no medieval authenticity here either...) So I am going to kill two birds with one stone. I think I will make this with some really thick cotton I got for a discount, and I'll pretend its wool. I'll do bliaut style sleeves like Eowyn's, with tight muslin undersleeves. I'll embroider the neck, armbands, and perhaps...even the end of the skirt. Then, so I could use it for both, I'll make a removable belt for when its Eowyn's, and I would make a purple jacket for when its Zeldas. Maybe. We'll see. I've never played a Zelda game in my life, but somehow I think this will be fun :)
