Galavant Inspired Gown

In case you haven’t heard, Galavant’s been renewed for a second season. And in case you haven’t heard of Galavant period, it’s a medieval musical comedy that debuted on ABC over the winter. The setting meant there were several elaborate costumes, particularly the gowns worn by Queen Madalena. Costumer Angela Clayton (she made that incredible Elsa costume last year) really liked Madalena’s wedding dress and took inspiration from the cut and style and mixed it with a completely different fabric to make a unique gown.

She used blue brocade and silky silvery blue fabrics to craft the gown. She started by drafting her own bodice pattern using a mannequin and went on to create the patterns for the remainder of the dress. She said:

It is made from a 1/2 yard of brocade and five yards of a mystery type of matte backed shiny fabric. It’s lined with scraps of cotton batik and laces up the back.

I was going to make this more elaborate with lots of beading and stuff, but I was worried about them catching on the brocade. I think it looks really lovely on its own since the fabrics are nice, so i’m leaving it as is!

About a week of work and $40 of materials went into it.

Only a week of work. Wow.
