Still quite a bit left to do, but it’s really coming together! I like the colors in this dress so much more then my red and white version. I think it looks a lot less juvenile and way more magical.
It’s made from organza and chiffon with a tulle overlay and $60 of fake flowers.
A friend made my cat a bowtie. He is super fancy and fluffy at the same time. ♡ Thank you Angie!! If I knew how to link your tumblr I would. Check out her work at doxiequeen1.
Ahh he’s so cute! I’m really glad you like it - and It looks like the fit and proportion turned out okay, I was a bit worried about that so i’m glad to see it worked out! Hopefully it holds up alright, I had to rush the hand sewing bits.
Also I didn’t know I was horribly allergic to cats until I spent an hour in the presence of Dustie but he’s amazingly friendly and playful and fluffy so it was well worth the runny nose.
I don’t like short dresses. I can’t seem to control my expression and legs at the same time, the photos always turn out a mess :(
Anyway! Flower dress and headpiece are all finished, step by step instructions for this dress can be found on my blog, and a video tutorial for the headpiece is here!
The whole thing is sheer, but you can’t really tell because the petticoat is white and i’m very pale ;;
It was designed, drafted, made, and worn by me! Took 16-ish hours to make, spread over a seven day period. Has about sixty dollars worth of fake flowers in it and several yards of silk organza, poly chiffon, and tulle.
I was a fun and easy little project. I enjoyed it.
I got interrupted while trying to be productive. She’s so funny, she wants a minute of attention and then she goes back to sleep.
Probably won’t put this in the finished video about this project, so I thought i’d post it here.
Audio is spotty and doesn’t add much but it seemed weird without it.
