This is the backof the gown I designed for a character that would fit into the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It's made of beautiful mint coloured velvet and mint coloured satin with a flower design on it. The sleeves are full circles. I used a cream coloured lace to trim the neckline and where the upper and lower sleeves meet.
The lacing at the back was inspired by the Versace dress worn on the 'Provocative Woman' campain. The back of this dress is my favorite part!
This gown is so much fun to wear, it's slightly heavy, but that makes it drape and hang in all the right places. It has a special place in my heart becuase it was my first completed (completely from scratch) costume.
