I made a dress--just for fun! This is the one I started in the midst of my recovery from filming. It felt very spontaneous and creative. The pattern is my own, a simple bodice that I added a bias fold trim to.
The skirt is a basic circle. I did true tea length! What do you think?
I bought a petticoat to go underneath it. It's a little long, but I like the way it peeks out.
The back is shirred with elastic thread for comfort. I'm writing a tutorial on how to adapt any dress pattern to use this technique! Check back for that.
New green shoes.
I also made a self-covered belt, but it totally blends in.
The fabric is this really great printed cotton pique. The texture is really tiny and subtle. They still have it at Paron's if you're interested.
The dress and crinoline are on my dress form in the living room and I love how it looks. I want to make it a permanent decoration!
