Lady Amalthea from The Last Unicorn: Progress

Lady AmaltheaI used to be obsessed with The Last Unicorn when I was a kid. When I heard they were doing a movie tour recently, I HAD to go, and in costume of course!

This costume was pretty easy to make- it’s a long off the shoulder princess seam dress. For the sleeves I just draped fabric on my arms and left the opening really wide, which I gathered to make the poof. The stripes on the front are Wonder-Undered pieces of purple ribbon that I satin stitched on the sides. The pockets are real and the edges are lined with the same ribbon. The top is covered with a pinkish bias tape and finished with lace. The main fabric is reversed (to avoid the shine) discontinued lavender Casa satin. It is lined with a cheap lavender cotton broadcloth.

For structure there is a cotton, plastic boned bodice connected at the top seam and armholes. A chiffon petticoat is connected to the bottom of the inner bodice (to avoid an outer seam at the hips). The wig is a white Persephone from Epic Cosplay. I just had to curl the ends.
