[Sticky] Got Questions? Find Answers! (The Costume Version)
I used a pirate/18th century shirt from a bought pattern - it's huge, and I would make a smaller version of the pieces before I used it again. But I intended it to be useable for others (part of my costume collection).
The shirt Mel is referring to is an imitation velvet/cord one I bought from a secondhand shop a few years ago to use the sleeves for my Lucy/PC outfit. I still had the rest of the shirt, so I cut off the collar and cut a neckline to match the jerkin. It was big enough and there were enough buttons to make double-breasted, so I did button holes for both ways of fastening (L and R overlap). Lastly I did a simple zig zag around all the edges using gold thread.
Over it I wore a belt with my plastic dagger pushed through, and wore dark blue trousers tucked into my brown flat boots.
If you can go to a charity shop and find a shirt of a suitable colour, you could cut it to shape and size, sew on some brass buttons, and wear a belt over it. Your tee shirt, if you can sacrifice it and it's big enough, could be cut down too - a v neck and some buttons sewn on.
Does anybody know of a good jeweler who would be willing to make a replica of Lucy's crown? (And won't make me go bankrupt... ) I would really love to wear a replica of her crown for my wedding, so I don't want something homemade. I've seen the page on The Lion's Call, and I've taken a look at the pictures on Jasmine Watson's website. I have no smithing experience, so if anybody could direct me to somebody who could do that for me I would be most grateful.

Does anyone know what is the oversleeve embroidery for Lucy's camp dress in the Lion the Witch and the wardrobe? I had been trying to find a sketch of it and no luck whatsoever.
The best photo showing the sleeves looks like it's this one from the super high rez section. A quick comparison says the sleeves are similar to the back embroidery so that's a starting point at least.
Over the weekend, I can double check the Movie Companion for LWW and see if it has any better shots. I hope this helps!
Thank you so much Meltintalle! I appreciate it so much
Hey has anyone ever made Lucy's pouch before? You know the one for her coridal?
