Maid Marian Gown


This dress is inspired by the gown worn by Lucy Griffiths as Maid Marian in the BBC television series Robin Hood.
 I created the sleeve lining fabric by machine embroidering the fabric and tea dying it to give it a more unique authentic look. You can see more about this process here.

The collar is all hand beaded.

 The gown laces up the back with a red leather cord and all the eyelets are hand sewn.

This gown is now available in my Etsy shop here!

Lovely, lovely. That is exquisite sewing!
Is this dress from the episode when the Sheriff want her to seduce the gaming lord or baron from Germany (Bohemia?)?
