Cranberry Gown


Cranberry Dress

This dress had a very brief appearance in “The Two Towers”; also, there are very few pictures of it.  Nonetheless, it is a gorgeous dress that I just had to make once I got the burgundy crushed panne velvet. 🙂

The velvet is stretchy, so the dress pulls over the doll’s head.  The sleeves, though they look like they are 2-part, are really 1 piece for a smoother fit.  At the bottom, the sleeve seam is left unsewn to allow the doll’s hands to come through.  Gold glitter paint decorates the neckline and sleeves.

    Beautiful… like the color … like Pomegranate.
    Walking will be difficult with this overflowing dress.
    Still very nice.

      I agree, Patima: Elvish dresses aren’t very practical–but they are pretty 😀

      This dress is in the part where Aragorn is lying by the river and Arwen revives him, after which his horse Brego arrives. (All you see is the neckline.) As it’s actually a romance scene, we don’t watch it, but there are a few pictures of the dress. http://www.costumersguide.com/arwen/cran5.jpg

        Well I think we watched atleast a little bit of it…and I thought that whole dream thing was kinda dorky 🙂 I doubt it is in the book, although I haven’t finished Two Towers yet.

        I don’t like that part, either (it’s not in the book). In fact, Arwen isn’t even in The Two Towers book. You’ll find the most differences between that book and its corresponding movie.
        BTW, hope you’re enjoying the books! Aren’t they cool? 😀

        Yes, I love the books! I just finished my chem final yesterday, so I was reading Fellowship. I think I like the characters of Frodo, Sam, Gandalf, and Strider more when I read about them in the books…like I thought it was cool that Bilbo made up songs (and he was the one who made the “Not all who wander are lost” poem), and also that Bilbo and Strider were friends and that Strider was so kind to even “insignificant” people 🙂
        Anyway, I think it’s those kind of things that can’t be portrayed in the movies, though the movies are great for the action and tense sequences!!

        Yeah, I like almost every character better in the book, too. But the movies are great for drama and “making things come alive.” 🙂
