So familiar a gleam by shoomlah So familiar a gleam by shoomlah
First things first. For those of you who swear by the pink dress, yes, there's a version for you as well: [link]

...Aaaaand moving on. So Prince Philip does specifically and emphatically say "this is the 14th century!" at some point during the film, but Philip's an idiot (a handsome, handsome idiot) and I, never afraid to ignore source material, ignored him.

Oddly enough Philip's clothing is a better point of reference than Aurora's (since the hourglass, off-the-shoulder cut of her dress is straight out of the 1950's), and there are far more examples of his get-up from the 1460's onward than in the 14th century. I went with my gut and ended up with something around 1485- a little later than one might expect, but it's such a (beautifully) stylized film that all bets are off.

I love the detail in this dress, clothing like this would have looked so nice in the film's style.

So regal and classic, just like Aurora (I doubt she would have appreciated the fur touch, tho). I remember the Queen wearing a somehow similar (but not nearly as detailed) outfit...? Anyway, gorgeous work.

Okay, I'm so loving the look of this one. If I might ask, would you mind if someone were to use this design for a future version of this?

I'm seriously in love with this and how you retained a bit of the elegant silhouette that is so definitive for Aurora. I especially love the ermine stole and the spindle motifs. Very lovely <3

I've only just now noticed the spindle patterns on the skirt. Good job on the subtle details! :D (Big Grin)
