Entry #31


2013 Fashion Design Challenge
Entry #31

Idea
This outfit is a costume from a book I'm writing, whose characters where kind of inspired by the elves in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.


In Progress
Here's all my materials: 


I used several different patterns for the different pieces in this outfit. I didn't create any of them myself except for the one for the flares on the sleeves, but I edited just about every one of them.

The pants are made from the Liberty Jane jeans pattern, but I made it without any pockets.


The shirt is also from a Liberty Jane pattern, but I lengthened the sleeves and added the little flares.






The boots were made from a pattern from a doll clothes book by Joan Hinds, and I edited it to make them taller. This is my first attempt at doll shoes other than sandals. What do you think?


The vest is also from a Joan Hinds book:


The main part of the cloak was made using a tutorial for a circle skirt. The hood is an edited pattern from a Joan Hinds book.



Finished Product
My work is complete! The woods in my backyard are the perfect place to display this outfit:
