Stardust is an underrated film. Between the fantastical story, the adventure, and the costumes, there’s a lot to love. Yvaine’s costumes are especially gorgeous. Yvaine is a star who falls to the ground, and when she falls, she’s wearing a stunning, flowing silver dress that does indeed look like a fabric representation of a star. The color makes a difference, but mostly, it’s the way the fabric hangs and flows. Costume designer Sammy Sheldon did an amazing job with it. Lauren Digby made a replica of the costume for her Stardust themed birthday party. She started with a Style pattern (#2370) but altered the sleeves and added neck bands and cuffs. She had some problems with the satin-y fabric not being so much suited for an outdoor party with cold weather (maybe Merida’s wool dress from Brave would have been a better choice), but it hangs nicely and looks like the one in the film.
