Lucy's Blue Camp Dress

 

Lucy is given this dress at Aslan's camp. She wears it to the stone table scene under her cloak, then on to the Witch's Castle, and from there to the battle.

Fabric

The dress looks like a soft, medium-weight plain weave (cotton?) in a sky gray blue color. The blueish white underdress and lining is a silk, possibly charmeuse.

Construction

The main body of the dress is made of 9 parts. The center front and two center back pieces are full length and princess seamed. Instead of two full-length side pieces, however, the sides are each made up of three pieces: two bodice pieces joined by a side seam, and one skirt piece flowing from a waist seam.

The back laces up similar to the way Susan's green archery dress does, a criss-crossing dark cord in loops, over a placket with a modesty panel in the same fabric behind it. The back neckline has emblems of embroidery at the corners on either side of the lacing. See Louise's pattern, below.

Neckline and Sleeves

The front neckline of the dress is a wide, shallow sloping V. Shoulder seams are only about 1 or 2 inches wide. The neckline is slit, extending to the upper torso and closed by three looped buttons. The buttons are white, almost clear, and not perfect circles. The front of the slit is scalloped so that it gaps roundly between the buttons showing the underdress.

Embroidery surrounds the neck from almost at the shoulder seams, extending down to just above her waist. See Louise's pattern, below.

The overdress sleeves are softly flared bells, not quite full length. These are baglined in the same pale blue fabric as the underdress. The bottom of the sleeve has embroidery, a similar color to the underdress, all around the wrist of the sleeve.

Underdress

The underdress neckline follows the same v-line that the overdress does, only without the slit. The underdress seems to shift and bunch in various pictures at the neck, and so for now we're speculating that it's a full underdress, sewn entirely separate from the overdress.

The sleeves are straight and fitted to the wrist. From this image, where Lu is jumping down from the tree, it seems that the full skirt of her underdress also has a gold ribbon trim around the hem, like Susan's underdress in the same shot.

Accessories and Red Cloak

Her hair is braided back with white flowers and viney foliage woven in. Her cordial and dagger are worn on their belt at her waist.

Constructed as a circle-cloak, it appears to be full-circle, calf-length and without a hood. The color is a rust reddish ochre, made of a woven wool. NarniaWebber Coracle tells us that the final Stansborough reproduction was the same fabric as the Centaur cloaks, only dyed a darker red.

The embroidery that borders all edges of the cloak—the neck, sides, and bottom edges—is of two rows of small leaves, arranged in a zig-zag pattern. This is one of our best shots.

The cloak fastens in front with a loop of red string anchored in the right side passing over a red button on the left side.
