Master of the Straights 2

November 2, 2008 at 1:57 pm (Uncategorized)

As mentioned in the previous post, this is the second dress that Phedre wears while in the company of the master of the Straights.  It’s described in Kushiel’s Dart as being deep amber with gold brocade on the fitted bodice.  Phedre wears a caul of gold mesh.  I have also added a bracelet that Phedre gets from the Queen of the Dalriada while in Ireland to the outfit.  It’s described as a gold bracelet rich with fine, intricate knotwork.

Here’s the dress:

And here are the fabrics and the bracelet:

    These designs are so lovely. Will you get a chance to produce these wonderful gowns?

    I would like to. It probably won’t happen for the next year as I will be busy being a new teacher. I have a dress form on my Christmas list and a sewing machine gathering dust in my project room. So someday I will get to it. Right now though I just have a couple hours here and there to design them!

    You’ve done such a fabulous job! I keep thinking they HAVE to come to you if Kushiel is ever made into a movie – the lead costume designer!
    I look forward to seeing your future designs!
    Good luck with the new teaching job!

    Huge fan of the series and just had to add my kudos to your designs. Thank you for sharing them. Look forward to seeing more.

    PSST, Phedre doesn’t actually go to Ireland. The Dalriada have a small settlement on Alba.

    Your drawings, BTW, are lovely!
