Inara Serra -  ooak costume from Firefly for 16" Tonner doll


Description Three-part outfit for 16" doll by Tonner (Tyler Wentworth, Brenda Starr).
You can see this costume   in episode "Jaynestown"; the original costume is red-blue, but  therefore I couldn't find red-blue brocade, I had to use purple instead red colour. My friend Petra helped me significantly - she hemmed the bottom edge of the skirt with her overlock sewing machine.

  • The circular skirt has a front slit up to mid-tighs, is a bit gathered at waist and closes back with a little snap.


  • The wrap dress is made from 2 finished (lined) pieces (front right+ back right and front left + back left pieces) they are stitched together at back and fasten at waist with hooks and eyes.  The sleeves are rhomboid-shaped with cut-out armhole, and the tip is weightened with a metallic bead and tassel. They are attached to dress with only a few stitches on shoulders. The neckline is embellished with  braids of dark blue beads and with  stripes of "Fortuny pleated" chiffon.


  • The wide, stiff belt fastens with snaps on side, and the rope, ending with tassels, wraps around it. The outf√≠t complement black leatjer sandals and necklace.


Used materials
  • For the dress I used a purple-blue polyester brocade, the lining is from a purple silk twill;
     
  • the sleeves and the skirt is from a purple polyester/viscose chiffon.
