I've been enjoying the Final Fantasy games ever since my brother and I got the original RPG for our Nintendo system. The series just keeps getting better! When I first saw Princess Garnet I decided that her dress would present a wonderful sewing challenge ^_^. It was my first attempt at creating such a complex dress involving boning, a petticoat, and lots of detail.

My husband (Jason Martin) painted the green leaf designs onto this dress.

This costume has been sold.
