I really like how this dress turned out even if I made it in only two days^^
The picture looks a bit blue but actually both the jacket and the mantle are pitch black with bordeaux and gold details

Io ho una adorazione per le uniformi militari ... volata di corsa tra i preferiti!!
Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii anche io sono una megafan delle divise militariiiiiiiii!!!!
Sto cercando un modo per fare non so, un vestito da donna vittoriano con corsetto-giacca militare...cose del genere XXXDDD
Thank you so much!!! The insigna is a replica of the original, I didn't really like it but my friend wanted it nevertheless XD
I LOVE heat presses but unfortunately I don't own one
They did use a lot of Elisabeth dresses in that movie, didn't they!!! XD I was impressed when I forst saw it XD Actually, my friend chose this one outfit so maybe one day she'll be able to lend it to another friend of us who wants to be Raul XD
I always wondered about this...POTO musical productions were gorgeous enough to give inspiration for the movie's costumes, I think that yes, maybe Shumacher did like Elisabeth's ones better XD
We tried it on stage and it looks black, too...but still I'm so angry that I can't take a decent picture of it XD
Other than wildlfe and outdoor photography; photography is sometimes done best in a controlled environment where you can pick everything down to the temp of the room. lol Don't worry, I say if you really are that picky (I know I would be) just the next time you go the the theater take everything you need and re-shoot all the garments from that collection.
Also try a different angle, right now the fabric is acting like a light bounce for the camera. Thus not helping your blue problem.
The blue door also doesn't help, if you want to shoot "product" photography. Which in a nutshell is what you are trying to do, use a white (or cream) background. It helps add focus and again helps with your control over the image itself. Though can act again as a light bounce so take that into account when shooting.
I hope I have given you some information that will help you. If you where near me I would come and help you but your not.
But I still say you do wonderful costume work, even if you and your camera have problems working together.
Be positive, taking good photos is a lot work and practice. Just like sewing. Its art and all art takes time to master.
PS: I tried to fix it in photoshop for you and I couldn't do it the colours aren't there for me to work with.
I never really thought of the base dye problem, even if I did study colour bases XXXDDD
My problem is that I don't really have space in the house to take decent pictures, so I use my door frame as base but next time I'll try to put a white sheet behind the mannequin I'll try to ask permission to use some interiors for the photos too, but I don't know if I'll have any luck XD
You're so very kind to give me all these advices, I don't have any knowledge on photography other than "I like this - I don't like this"^^ I really want to study a bit of it, I hope to be able to make some time for it
Thank you so much for all your help
I really have to take a photo of my friend wearing it XD
I'm so happy you like it
Sewing the details was hard though, because it took most of the time...I almost didn't sleep at all one of the two days XD
