Here’s my favourite part of our performance from last weekend, where we are so in sync! I’m very lucky these two ladies joined me for this project; they busted their butts and learned how to use sword (!) so we could do our best. They’re awesome!

Hi, I'm planning to do a gerudo dress link from breath of the wild and I'm stuck on what fabric to use. I was thinking a cotton sateen because of the nice jewel tones, but wasn't sure if it would be too stiff to get the flowy desert feel of the costume. Do you have any ideas/recommendations? Thank you very much!!

Hello there!

For this, I’d recommend something with a soft hand that is semi-sheer rather than a cotton staeen. If you go with natural fibers and are willing to do some dyeing yourself, you can get the rich jewel tones without having to worry about what colors the fabric is actually manufactured in. If you line the top, you won’t have to worry about anything showing through while still getting the look of the soft material.

My first pick would be gauze or something in that family. Here’s a cotton gauze and here’s a rayon gauze; both would have to be dyed, which I would recommend fiber reactive dyes for. Another option would be this gorgeous silk/rayon blend, which would be dyed with a combination of acid and fiber reactive dyes, or with a ‘universal’ dye like Rit or iDye, and is more opaque than my other recommendations here. Cotton lawn or harem cloth might be good if you want a slightly more homespun look. For a much more sheer look (this is what I used for my pants for Harle), a silk organza would be lovely, but getting a bit far from the reference.

Other fabric types to look for: georgette (I’d recommend silk or rayon to keep yourself cool), silk chiffon in a higher mm (so that it’s more opaque and heavier than a more sheer poly or nylon chiffon), or if you can find a linen with a soft hand. A lightweight crepe could be another option, as could a jersey knit (which seems out of step with the world of the game but it would be a good look and is easily accessible, as a lot of these fabric types can’t exactly be found at Joann’s and have to be ordered online).

For this project, you want something that is soft and flowy and doesn’t have a whole lot of structure so that you can get the billowy look. I’m also sticking to mostly natural fibers because of the desert environment, but if you don’t mind polyester versions of these trapping heat (except the organza, which tends to be too stiff when in polyester form), then those might be easier to find. Keep in mind your method for adding the designs, as well – if you embroider, bead, or applique, fabric type can be pretty much anything, but if you want to paint or stencil, it may be better to go with something with a smooth surface rather than twisted yarns (like a crepe or georgette) so that you can get crisper lines.

I hope that helps! Good luck :]
