|Sneak peak; Well I have to save something for a Halloween post!|
So instead of buying fabric I ran down into my dungeon and found this.... Ahhh My clearance table cloth. I had snagged the last three of these at Extra Foods before my wedding thinking I'd use them. But I didn't. Did you see the price? How could I resist. And believe it or not, I paid 50% of the clearance price, You got it I paid $1.42 for this beaut. Two of them made their way home with my Mom since I don't have a 90" long table. The other one has sat around for 2 1/2 years waiting to be used for something. The game plan, to make a dress and use the tutu as a crinolin. Completed with some cheap princess accesories and voila!
try it on for size. Not too bad, It's big enough to layer underneath!
Pin the arm to the armhole (make sure right sides are facing!) I did two pleats on the top of the arm (hence the extra 2" that I added)
try on model to check out fit. Looks great!
Check it out. It's cute but still a bit plain looking, Time for some toule accents on the arms to match the crinolin/ tutu, and accessories
There, Long white gloves, pearl necklace, also a tiara and Wand. Stay tuned for the Halloween pictures.
Thanks for checking it out. I adore comments and if you try a dress like this please send me pictures!
