Dress Tutorial by LauraTolton Dress Tutorial by LauraTolton
So this is how I made the dress from the film King Arthur.
I am no seamstress I merely made this in a methodical way.

Anyway, with all of that aside I hope this helps or at least sheds some light upon how to make it.

After step 5 please turn inside out to hide the seams, for the sleeves you will see the seams anyway unless you make them separately.

I used around 3 meters of fabric that was 60 inches wide.
The cotton jersey fabric was a soft stretchy type so it draped really well.

I have some new photos of the dress here… and here…


As I receive so much interest from this tutorial if I made a short run of these dress would anyone be interested in buying one?

I used this pattern for my dress in Bicolline (biggest larp in north america) and I got a huge succes. I didn't sow the sleeves togeter and used the front part to wrap around my waist. Thanks for that pattern!

How did you calculate how long your fabric needed to be?
LauraTolton Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I held it up to myself in the shop to see. I also had a tape measure with me to work out the length etc I'd need to get what I was after. I hope that helps.

So.... Let's say I want to have measurements it...

If I measure shoulder to floor for the length, is that correct?
And how wide do you suggest the neckhole to be?

Sorry I have so many questions, just love the dress and want to make it as perfect as possible (a)
