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.

This is absolutely beautiful! 
I'm going to be making the Wishing Gown for this huge school project and I was wondering what kind of materials you used and approximately how much it cost?

Mmm hard to say :D Wishing Fabric: $350, Blue fabric and velvet $60, Lace I don't remember but probably $40.
Corset and Bustle, maybe $80. Velvet ribbon, $30, and engageante lace, something like $15. it was a very expensive dress >_<
But it was a choice to make the fabric look the same etc. It wouldn't be so expensive if it was something more simple :)

Thanks, I'm also having a bit of trouble with the waterfall train. How did you fold it and what was the original shape?

Awesome dress! Did you get the pattern from somewhere or did you make the pattern yourself? And if you did make the pattern yourself, would you be willing to sell it to people who want to make this dress for themselves?

Yes and no! I've bought most of the patterns on Truly Victorian (I HIGHLY recommand this collection of patterns. Very easy, etc!
I've bought these patterns: Dinner bodice TV442 (altered to fit over a bustle) and 1870s Underskirt TV201
The dinner bodice have been cutted on the front to make a velvet "faux vest".
The train has been made thanks to this tutorial:articles.glittersweet.com/howt…

I'd love to explain how I've altered the bodice, but it's impossible, I've transformed it so may times, and in the end I've cutted directly on my dummy XD Making patterns is a REAL job I think. Personnaly, I suck at sewing something without a pattern. Creating one myself terrifies me haha !

:iconiloveyouplz:What a gorgeous gown!  It is my favorite costume in the show and you have replicated it fabulously!  I sure wish I knew how to sew and was skinny enough to look good in a gown like that!
