The Longest Night

October 22, 2008 at 5:06 am (Uncategorized)

Here is a dress that is pretty much the opposite of the last one.  It is from Jacqueline Carey’s book Kushiel’s Dart.  It is on the longest night, which is a night where people dress up in costumes and generally get involved in all kinds of debauchery.  It is described as a loose fitting gown of white gauze with trailing sleeves spangled with tiny diamonds . A velvet slipcollar with diamond teardrop (something that will be present in the next few dresses) and leash are worn around Phedre’s neck.   Half mask of white and brown feathered osprey with black piping. White ribbons in curls.

The dress is, unlike the last dress, not modest in the slightest – being mostly transparent.  I didn’t cover the naughty bits out of embarassment, just a lack of practice drawing them.

So, here are the fabrics, which are fine even though they are flimsy.
