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 ;)
