Really seriously, Lady Eowyn?! :-o B-) From a reliable source? Or was it possibly just wishful thinking? Because I would love it to be so.

Regarding Lucy's weapons, I don't mind too awfully that she has Susan's bow.
I certainly don't like the idea of Lucy using a Telmarine crossbow, and since they brought Rhindon, what's a few more ancient treasures tossed about?

But Trumpkin's sword just does not belong on the Dawn Treader! It's pointless. (Ha! no pun intended!) After all, he's still very much alive and would presumably like to keep it with him at Cair Paravel. Because he's a dwarf, I like to imagine that he forged it himself, which would tend to make him rather attached to it. I think they're just trying to save money on props by not having a new one made. =;

I know that some earlier sketches for VDT toys had Lucy with a bow and arrow and she was wearing a dress. The bow and arrow part is true but I just don't see a dress being likely unless it happens in a dream or something.

She might wear a dress some time on an island, but I think that because she's on a ship, she's wearing sailing clothes because dresses are too delicate. I also get that impression from her hair; it's not braided Narnian style, it's just a ponytail on her shoulder, which is not so formal, even though she was traveling a lot in the other movies.

I'm really hoping that she gets a dress but if she does will it be best for salior? Since she's traveling it will be more free-willing if she sticks with Caspian's clothes. :D

Aslan's Mane, if you want the ship outfit, you need four basics:
boots
plain blue trousers (add decoration down outside seam)
a large white shirt with no collar
a man's size vest/waistcoat

I am using the bodice of a loose-fitting rust red shirt, cutting down below the collar line. I hope to embroider on some gold decoration. I'm making a shirt using a commercial pattern from the fancy dress section.

I've been considering making the vest too, Aslans-mane! I haven't been able to find any patterns that look suitably close, so if I do it I'm planning to make my own pattern. That's kinda putting me off, because I've never done such a thing... I'm thinking it would have to be a simpler crew-member type vest, but with a slanting double-breasted front like Lucy's.

I've gone so far as to save photos of Lucy in the vest from multiple angles, and I've also collected a few huge squares of white paper to cut the pattern from.

Greetings!!! I too am making Lucy's VDT outfit. For the vest, I'm using a dark redish purple because it looks more royal and the color complements my sister for whom I am making the outfit. I also found light blue velvet for and awesome price at a local Jo-Ann fabric store. I was so happy when I found that it was over 50% off too. :D I'll be hand embroidering the vest and pants. I'm hoping to make the boots as well. I haven't gotten the fabric, embellishments, or pattern for the shirt yet, but I hope to soon.

I found this awesome tutorial that would work perfectly for Lucy's pants.

This shirt also looks really close to Lucy's.

I wish you all luck and good times as you prepare your costumes!

For anyone else who is interested in how the Lucy's blouse is cuffed, the scans pippovic posted in GMD show a clear seam and then the beginning of the pleats.

Now, if only there was a view of the top of her sleeve so we can see the other join...

Oh great new pictures of Lucy's sleeve! I really like the little ruffles at the end of the sleeve. It's unfortunate thought, that we don't get any lovely dresses from Isis Mussenden. I was really looking forward to one of those. :(

Sorry about the double post. I just had to share.

Lucy's leg embroidery can finally be seen!!!!!!! *squeal* There's also a great picture of her outfit without the jerkin too.

You can see Lucy, Eustance, Edmund, and possibly Caspian here as well as some of the crew.
