the costumes are being auctioned - alas, that
dress is not one of them! And I THINK I
mentioned in my first email - I meant to if I
didn't say it - that the DVDs aren't any good for
the bottom half of the dress. You only ever see
Inara from the waist up except for once and she's
running down the stairs at the time as well as
wearing her gold robe over the top. Trust me, I
have been over that scene in slow-mo as many
times as I can before going cross-eyed! :-P
Good luck with Mal's coat - whenever you fet
around to it! It's a very good coat!

I made Kaylee's outfit that she wears during the pilot so I got a few good
looks of Inara's while doing that. This is on the list to make after the
ones I have fabric for are made up. =)
Anyway, you were looking for back views of this and I haven't figured out
how to screencap but I think the website that you listed might be willing to
take a few extra for you if you asked. Otherwise there are several fan
boards that might have someone.
I have the times listed below and what I found at each of them if you want
to try looking at it on your puter or request a screencap. Most of them I
went through frame by frame so I don't know how screencapping would work.
One frame was good but not the next type of thing.
Anyway, I saw the back neckline to be a simple v without any of the
gathering detail that is on the front neckline/straps. Center back zipper
that had a centered application instead of lapped, and definitely not
invisible. Side back darts that ended before the neckline but prolly went
down to the hips. A center back godet just like the front godet. The back
is prolly just in three pieces, the godet and two backs and all of the
shaping is done by the center back seam and the two darts. The medallions
on the belt go all the way around. I didn't find a good clean shot of them,
wasn't concentrating on that too much, but I think the medallions fit
exactly or the links are taken in slightly on either side of the center back
Any more questions and I'll see what I can do.

doesn't show back view but pretty much convinces me no lining all the way

Center back zipper and center back godet just like the front - shows how far
the godet goes up

Centered zipper rather than lapped or invisible and shows how far up the
godet goes as well, also shows back neckline
Ch. 18 1:17:09

Rather blurry but shows the line of the back neck
Ch. 19 1:21:32-33
Back dart prolly goes up to the shoulder blade, not all the way to the

I know there were some shots in the making of bits of the dvd that
showed her from the back. If I get a chance, I'll find them and cap
them for you.

- I went ahead and capped what I found. Just after Mal, Zoe and Jayne
get back to Serenity and Mal is telling Inara to get to the other
shuttle, she turns away from him and turns her back to the camera.
Sorry, forgot to check the chapter and scene number. You can clearly,
well, kinda, see the back of the dress.
If you watch it in action, you'll see it appears to be slit in the
back just as it is in the front.
