These are all quite lovely. This is a technique I hope to learn someday, too. Keep up the good work!

Very pretty, I can't wait to see the finished project.

Pretty, and a clever idea to use a font.
24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Dragon Dress into Top with Skulls & Roses on: July 14, 2011 06:56:07 PM
I know this skull & roses cotton fabric is everywhere. I don't care; I love it. I had a fairly small piece, so I decided to make a top of it to wear out for my birthday last month.

I used the same muslin I made from the Dragon Dress tutorial, only I lengthened the midriff section and back, and flared them out a little to go over my hips, and eliminated the skirt, of course.

The whole thing is lined (with red) and there's a zipper down the back. One other modification to the tutorial: instead of pleating the bust, I gathered it. It's a nice variation, I think.



Thanks for looking!

Pretty. I like the idea of adding a charm to make a scene. What's going on in the back of the stone?

How much too small are we talking? I saw a project once where someone turned the bodice of a dress into a corset top. Since the lacing could spread it out, you could add maybe 3 inches there.

I haven't done any dresses, buy I've done lots of tops. In addition to the side panel/insert idea, I've also cut off the part that didn't fit and replaced it with a part that did. For example, the bust was too small, so I cut the bottom off and sewed it to the bust from another top to make an empire waist top. You can also make a top/skirt that you can wear together as a dress or as separates. If the skirt has some extra length, you can cut the extra off at the waist, basically moving the waist down, which makes it bigger at the same time.

Hope this gives you some ideas. If you can post a pic of the dress that might help generate more specific ideas.

Everyone is getting such nice stuff. I'm also loving the wide leg pants, the tie-die t and the hair flower!

YAY!  I'm so glad everything is a great fit and you love it all Smiley  I had a really hard time giving up that wristlet, so I'm going to make myself one for our upcoming wedding in all white eyelet trims in the same style.  Mine should be arriving any day now...if it's not already on my doorstep when I get home...hopefully it's not soaking wet, been raining ALL DAY LONG here today Tongue

Ew, that would be a nasty mess. I don't think anything would be damaged permanently, but there's lots of tissue paper. I do hope you get it today, that would be awesome!
