This commission was for a replica of the dress that the character Drusilla wears in the "School Hard" episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Not only is it a very pretty dress with historical overtones, but I am a big Buffy fan, so this felt like a perfect job for me!
The dress is made of satin brocade, with an ivory chiffon overlay over the skirt, and chiffon puffed sleeves. On looking closer at the dress on the episode, I realized that it was basically a "Titanic" era shaped dress, with the high waistline, chiffon draping and little puffed sleeves, so that is the shape that I used, with some modern conveniences like the invisible zipper closure in the back.
This dress was intended as a Halloween costume. The price range is from this dress in these kind of fabrics, to this style in higher end fabrics like silk chiffon and silk brocade.
