I made a Thor Dress to see Thor The Dark World with my friends! I wore it with my Haenuli galaxy prince tights, We’re All Mad Here Gallifreyan necklace and my Thor earrings from 1928.
I used Simplicity 2588 as my muslin pattern. The red sleeves are a cotton sateen with top stitched detail lines. The base navy fabric is a glitter dotted stretch denim from Joann’s and the silver is a snakeskin pleathery type fabric that I Heat N Bond Lite-d on and then satin stitched the edges with metallic thread. I added large buttons (that I painted silver) on top of the appliquéd silver pleather circles. I ended up not adding the skirt stripes in my original sketch because the metallic thread satin stitching was so problematic! I broke two bobbins and the thread kept breaking and tangling all the time. Metallic thread is the worst!
