The finished Wishing Dress by Katikut The finished Wishing Dress by Katikut
My reproduction of Christine Daae's Dress from the Phantom of the Opera show!
The fabric is a reproduction (oh my god it was so expensive T_T) the train is super heavy, and I had to handsew many many things! I can't wait to wear it at Garnier in July :D
It's worn over a bustle, the same as my red Tournure.

What type of material is it made from? Also, I've been trying to find the name of the style of bustle on this dress. Do you know what it's called? And did you use a tutorial or pattern for it?

Thanks!

It's made of cotton satten. The bodice is an altered version of this one: www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcart…
It's a natural form bodice, which means you can't wear it with a big bustle. The shape at this period was more flat, that's why even if the front had the good shape, I've changed the "tail" to fit the bustle which is quite huge on this dress :) The making of is on my costume blog: dentelleetsatin.blogspot.com :)

Thanks so much! I ordered that pattern the other day. I've already been using your blog for reference and research. You took a lot of helpful progress photo's, which is s something I'm really bad at.

Thanks again!

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I really appreciate it!

I have one more though. Did you use a wig for this costume or is that your real hair?

for this dress I've got a wig covered with my own hair :) It was a good way to have them longer, my real hair are already very long (about 20") and the good color but it was not enough :)
