Gowns are costumes that were quite popular in the medieval period and have even started appearing in trend in the recent days. It is fun to wear such types of dresses for plays, Halloween or other costume parties. Agreed that you can purchase all these gowns and dresses in the market but making them at home with your own good hands has an enjoyment of its own. What you need is just some clothes from your closet!
The very first thing you need is a poet shirt. A poet shirt is a loose garment which has full sleeves and also has frills on the cuffs and front. The port shirt will be worn as the first layer of dressing. Then select an elegant long full length dress preferably having velvet material. Make sure that this dress has short or no sleeves and is slim fit. Now, remember that you will be wearing the long dress over the poet shirt.
The next step is to embellish the long dress with some decorations. For the same, you can use braided trims of golden or other bright colors along the neckline of the dress. Trimming in the clothing industry is a sewing pattern used to design dresses. And a braid is a pattern made by intertwining at least three strings of materials such as flexible threads and wires. The combination of these two structures will surely look good on the neckline of your dress. You can also have similar kind of structures at the waist of that dress.
Additionally, to give your evening gown a more sophisticated and royal feel go for arm bands around the sleeves again made from similar colors of threads used in the braided trims. It is not necessary that you use a golden color for doing this stuff. Other bright colors like glowing silver or even glazing dark black can work out well. It actually depends upon the color of your dress and poet shirt. Make sure that the colors you use in the decorations are contrasting enough so that they give a sense of style and fashion.
Once you do this, your evening gown made from everyday clothes is ready. You can select matching footwear which most preferably would be sandals to flaunt an exotic look at parties. It is as simple as that!
