Beautifully done. You made one of the cheaper fabrics look rich and elegant. After besting a petrochemical-based fiber, you will just love working with a good quality cotton pile. Try making a slightly fitted tunic for yourself; you'll be amazed how comfortable and flattering this style of gown can be.

arianamaniacs, thanks for your comment! I was thrilled to read what you said about Boromir because the example page my friend sent me was from a book describing Boromir's clothing!

It looks so rich. What a great job. It reminds me of something that Boromir would wear.

Great tunic, you've used very simple embelishment to give a very rich looking result.

How cool! I love the detailing on the sleeves, it looks great. The fabric sounds tricky, though. Thanks for the great review.

What fun to do create something so different! Won't it be a riot when your friend paints your costume into a book cover?! Lovely work, hope you get to do more like it.
