1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Mimi's Dress in the movie version of RENT during "Out Tonight" and "Another Day" on: August 21, 2009 08:56:54 PM
So, I love this dress and I want to make it and I'm looking for a pattern  to start off. Help? I couldn't find a good picture so here's a video where she's wearing it most of the time.

I'm pretty sure it's sleeveless but I'd like to make it with sleeves. It's high-necked with a cute little keyhole thing going on and pretty short. super cute.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help with my prom dress--the green one from "Atonement" on: October 04, 2008 05:03:51 PM
Hey! I'm trying to make the green dress Keira Knightley wears in the movie "Atonement" for my boyfriend's prom. I have a simple pattern. That's about it. I have no experience sewing clothes before now. Everything before now has been  replacing buttons, fixing seams/hem, and embroidery. I can't really use those skills to make my dress. Any suggestion helps. ANY at all.

Here's the pattern I'm using:

I'm going to make the dress first, then take it to someone to make a few modifications. Like adding the slit up the front and trying to do something fancy with the skirt (not quite as elaborate as Keira's, but not so plain) and making the back lower (if at all possible)

I want to make it in a green, like the one pictured, but I know that the costumer for the film used a mix of 3 different colors and then dyed her own fabric. If I can't find a good green, then I want to make it in a deep blue.

The fabric used for the dress was ridiculously fragile, can anyone suggest a fabric that will drape well but won't tear at the drop of a hat? Especially if you know a site where I can order fabric samples, that would be fantastic.

Here is the actual dress. It's goregeous.

I don't have money to spend on a dress, or I might have just bought the copy (for $250, no can do) and all the vintage stuff I find is too small. I have until May to make this. I'd really appreciate experienced craftster's help
