TV Thursday - Halloween edition: Lady Morgana

Who watches Merlin? It is a BBC show that I find kind of cute... And this week, it is Lady Morgana time! In the first seasons, she was nice, but she became evil and tries to kill the king (her guardian) and his son (prince Arthur, almost her brother).

I have picked three looks: a day dress, a night dress, and a cape. I have found my happiness on the websites of McCall and Butterick. They really have nice costumes.

As any Lady, Morgana wears gowns. Here is a nice and simple day one. I bet she would wear it in a purple or green velvet! I love the tied back and the simple top. You can make an underskirt with a rich printed fabric as a nice contrast! I would totally do that if there was a Halloween party around here!

For banquets, she dresses up with richer colors and golden or silver embellishments. This pattern would work very nicely. The sleeves, the back, the belt and the neckline are gorgeous. It also makes me think of something that Eowyn (Lord of the Rings) would wear! Wouldn't it be be great in an ivory fabric, with chiffon ivory sleeves, and golden embellishments?

Lady Morgana must get out in the woods to meet her evil sister to plot against the people of Kamelot. She therefore hides under flowy capes! I find them so feminine! McCall has a cute pattern. Wouldn't you love a velvet cape, because I would!

Here we are! My Halloween post! What are you sewing or cooking for Halloween?
We are cooking pumpkin muffins ;)


  1. I don't have any halloween plans except to try to convince my husband that scaring the trick-or-treaters will NOT endear us to the neighbors... but the show! I occasionally watch it as filler because it's on Netflix on Demand! I didn't know where it came from - BBC, that makes sense. And having been weaned on the Mists of Avalon, I have a hard time following the plot line. Morgan is the GOOD one, Gwenevier the bad (in my head) but that doesn't seem to be the case in the show - I'm only a few episodes in.

    Apart from the apalling lack of chinese take-out and women's rights, I sometimes wish that we lived in the whatever century (or middle earth!) where your gown #2 was regular wear.

  2. I love Morgana's dress and i would love a cape. We arn't doing anything this halloween, i'm going to carve a pumkin though! I Love the dress you made for your Mom its gorgeous.

  3. Wow! I have been looking everywhere to find a nice, simple pattern for a Morgana dress and these are just perfect! I love the cape and the evening dress is gorgeous! You're right, it's just like something out of the Lord of the Rings, just the kind of dress I can picture Arwen or Eowyn in. I wish I could move to Middle-Earth, just so I could wear these dresses!

  4. I'm in love __
    I seriously love her dresses!
    especially the one in the first pic *drools&cries over beauty*
