Fandom Flair: Damane Dress


Mashiara Sedai

I've been meaning to highlight this craft for awhile.  For last year's JordanCon, I was very excited to finish my sul'dam dress.  It turned out beautiful, and I adore the silver lightning bolts.  But a sul'dam without a damane isn't complete.  So, with long-time Dragonmount member Hallia as a willing participant, I got to work on crafting a damane dress.

 

I started with four yards of a gray poplin folded in half.  This gave me 72 inches in height and 60 inches in length.  That's a great amount of material and the price for poplin is so reasonable!

With simplicity in mind, I wanted to do as little cutting and sewing as possible.  I cut the arms and sides with a single cut, then cut the neckline.

I added satin binding to the bottom hem and the sleeves.

The neckline gave me some trouble.  I started an elastic binding, but it bunched too weird, so I switched it for a ruffle.

And here we are at JordanCon!

Hallia was such a good damane!  And this was such a simple project.
