This is in the opening sequence, Miraz Jr.'s birth
scene. It's a white off-the-shoulder chemise, with a dark blue
robe or shawl of some sort on her right shoulder.
Behind the Scenes Feature
Soldiers Return Gown
Blue, heavily embroidered and beaded, with high
(velvet?) collar, and some kind of scarf at the neck.
Seen from the back only in the film: blue, off the shoulder,
shoulder pieces are satin with some sort of embossed design.
She wears a pearl hairpiece under her upswept hair.
Kristinamy visited the Narnia exhibit in Arizona (see our exhibits
page), and she took down a sketch from memory (see below)
and some good notes:
The dress was really beautifully draped. It almost had
a lingerie feel to it. The dress was not very shaped, but
hung quite loose from the bust (it was kind of shaped at the
bust, but after it fell away it was really clinging to the
body only because of the drape of the fabric whenever it fell
on the bias). The seams at the front are princess seam-esque
but with sharp corners instead (think the shape of Su's last
dress). I'm quite sure that there was no side seam, but a
side piece coming around to the back as shown in the drawing.
It made it quite drapey, as it hung on the bias.
The sleeves had bands of lace (with no lining- you could
see the arms). I don't remember the number of bands. The sleeves
then become larger- like LotR shaped. I *think* that there's
large pleats/gathers tacked to keep the sleeves gathered.
The mannikin had her arms sort of in front of her with the
elbows bent and hands together, but the sleeves seemed to
be very nicely gathered, so I think that it was tacked. I
distinctly remember seeing some matte fabric inside the sleeve-
it didn't seem lined but for some reason my memory is recalling
strange frilly shapes. Maybe it was edged with scalloped lace.
But from my vague memory of matte-ness, I don't think the
sleeve was lined.
I'm really unsure about the neckline. It was definitely
lace, but I'm not sure if it was backed. There were several
buttons down the front, and they had something shiny (I think
a rhinestone) in the middle of each. The buttons stopped maybe
halfway down the bust.
The under-layer was ivory, probably satin as well, with
a black lace overlay. There was a bunch of random decorative
fabric covering the ground, so the hem was difficult to see.

Night Raid Nightgown
This chemise/night gown looks like an empire-seamed gown in
a gray-blue cotton or linen, with tiered caps on the shoulders,
and a drawstring neckline. The large puffed sleeves are gathered
and possibly covered with a narrow binding.
