Sewing/Craft Projects - salymander
I'm trying to collect pictures of my sewing and craft projects in one place. I may also post tutorials and patterns for some of the things I create.
Semi-formal Remade Dress
About a year ago, I bought a blue formal dress at a thrift store because I loved the color and the fabric. Unfortunately it was many sizes too big and the style was none too flattering...thus a new sewing project was born. A few pictures from before I started work, and once I had taken it apart. I was too eager to start to do a very good job showing the original. Shortly after I started working on this project, I put it down. I am just now getting back to finishing it.
I have started sewing Merida's green dress from Disney's Brave. So far I have made the white underdress in a very thin off white crepe fabric using Simplicity 2777 but doing elastic at the neck instead of a drawstring. I have also cut out the main part of the dress from a dark green fabric with a bit of a crinkly character. I am using Butterick 4827 for the dress except blending the neckline with the one in Simplicity 4149. I haven't decided what to do with the over sleeves that are in pieces.
Check out my new photo album with my journey through this costume.
