Dickson in "The art of the Return of the King"
For the moment, this site will only have the few images of the cloak and gown (from the design gallery on the RotK EE and from 'Art of...') and some sparse notes until I have time to write down some more theories on the cloak (and do a pattern sketch). The notes on the dress are complete though.....enjoy!
* Ngila says it's a blue-black silk gown,so...I was right on the silk part
The Gown worn
under the cloak. It's basically something very simple that was never meant
to be seen. The only fancy thing are the sleeves, but even the "gold
lattice detail" goes only just until the elbows and stops there,
because they knew that nothing more of the sleeves would be seen.
look already great, but the rest of the dress is just patchwork. This
is a great opportunity for an original design!
The skirt and
the 'bodice' are blue, the sleeves and upper neck portion black. The dress
has a drop-waist that you can see on close inspection.
