Ooo! Any progress so far? I'd love to see!
I've been gathering up references and am planning on making the green outfit, white confessors gown, and her traveling cloak hopefully by the end of this year. I absolutely love these costumes!

i have been looking for the right fabric. I want it to look almost exactly like it.

but I think I am going to wind up settling for a brown cotton that kinda looks like suede from a distance.

Linen is definitely the way to go! I can't wait to see your coat, I probably won't be able to start on mine for a few months. Let me know if you need any additional images of the costume, I've collected quite a bit of hi-res images of all of her costumes from different angles.
 My favorite part of her costumes are the giant hoods and the fact that they all lace up in interesting ways!

The collar of the coat is actually the front of a large hood, makes it look like lapels sort of. I was trying to pick it apart myself when I was watching it. Linen would give a good worn look but so would a nice tightly woven, close to middleweight, canvas. Canvas would be warmer with only a thin lining, and therefore it would lay closer to the body and be more form fitting. But that is of course only if you really wanted a functional coat, if you are just looking to reproduce the garment then Linen would be fine :-)

I happened to read this thread a few days back and was dieing to prepare a coat of that kind.... Finally I got a suitable fabric at a online clothing & apparel store http://www.storeshere.com/public_html/html/Clothing_L2K_Apparel/ and would start sewing by next week.

I can recreate this coat and any other costumes people want. I am a costume designer and seamstress. My pic is a sample of my work, and Elf from LOTR. Email me: [email protected]

the show is great! not as bloody or graphic as the books but good. it is kinda like hercules or xena but less campy (same director)

These shows also all have the same costume designer, Jane Holland, she's kinda like my idol....
Anyway, the white confessor's robe is a one of a kind, handmade by Jane without a pattern, so best of luck to any who tries to reproduce it.

I love that dress. And the series too. The costuming is so gorgeous I'm completely distracted from the storyline.

Today I visited the costuming livejournal community for the first time in over a year and found out someone made the white dress. (I think both dresses use the same pattern.) She used Butterick B4827, but made the pattern for the hood herself. I think the best way to make it is making a big hood from an old sheet or something, see how it drapes and adjust until you're happy with it.

The original posts:
http://community.livejournal.com/costuming/235412.html for detailed pictures
http://community.livejournal.com/costuming/237347.html for the dress on a person

I would love to see your findings. I intend to make the dress too, after about ten other projects.
