As the title suggests, this is a barbie-sized miniatures scale replica of the sequinned evening gown Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) wears in the opening sequence of "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".
Entirely stitched by hand. I drafted a miniature paper pattern, cut and stitched the base out of fine red silk, then sourced 3mm-wide sequins and got to work, stitching them on in those curved lines, trying to copy the actual dress as closely as possible.
The dress is fully functional, with tiny gold beads that act as scale buttons. The gloves don't have fingers though, the scale was just a bit too small for me to try and replicate!
The gold zig-zag trim on the sleeves, collar and bodice are all fine chain-stitched golden threads. A total labour of love
