This Elven dress was my Halloween costume two years ago, but I have since worn it at my local renaissance faire as well. I made it in several layers, which can be worn separately or together, depending on the temperature that it will be worn in. The red underdress is made of silk, and laces up the back. I also have a red skirt of the same silk that can be worn in place of the underdress in hot weather. The embroidery on the satin of the outerdress, as well as the organza sleeves, is the same design. This was a lucky coincidence, since I bought the two fabrics at different stores! The outer sleeves are finished with strips of the satin from the body of the outerdress and gold studs. The short bodice is made of wool felt, and closes with laces on the sides. The collar is decorated with an overlay of the transparent sleeve fabric, and can be worn either
up or down.
