Epic Dress 2 - Forest Queen by kirilee Epic Dress 2 - Forest Queen by kirilee
THIS IS NOT STOCK!

Epic Dress # 2
Created: December 2012 - January 2013
Hours spend making: 40 - 45
Materials used: 20 meters x 150cm wide cream chiffon, three packets of ipoly green dye, 5 meters of 150cm wide green cotton, approximately 45 meters of gold ribbon, 750 meters of green sewing cotton, 350 meters of yellow sewing cotton (corset was a CHEAP one bought off ebay that I've had for about a year)
Inspiration: light, air, wind, life, movement, forest, regal, fantasy
Outfit cost: Approximately $200 - 250 for materials (and corset)

Bit about:
I have always wanted to make something that looks like it should be in a fantasy movie. I think I may actually have done it with this one.

I created this dress with the idea of wanting a dress to almost float with lots of layers of light weight material when wind it it.

I came up with the concept after scoring a bargin on ebay of cream chiffon for $71 including postage. I then cut out the pieces and hand dyed each piece giving a very rich and beautiful differentiation in the colouring. I used two standard patterns for the skirt and sleeves and drafted my own patterns for the rest of the items attached directly to the corset.

I am so happy with the way this dress moves in the wind - full of life. It is truly Epic.

Here are some of the stocks that I have shot in this dress:
