11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / From Bridesmaid to Snow White on: September 02, 2007 01:21:50 PM
This is my first post with pictures (finally got 10 posts!), and second reconstruction project.  This site is so cool.  I don't really need to be on here as I don't have that much time as it is, but, this project turned out so well, I just had to share with those who would appreciate it.

This is the blue velvet shirt that I started with.  It was mine, I got lots of use out of it in college, but it was just collecting dust in my closet, so I figured it needed a new life.


This is the yellow bridesmaid dress (I'm on the right) also hanging (really it was on the floor) in my closet getting no use.  We all know I wasn't going to wear it again, so it was going to get a new life also.



The only additions were a remnant of red faux suede fabric that calicokitty gave me for the tear drop shapes in the sleeves (which were TEDIOUS btw--I've never done so much pining!) and the bow.  I also used an old blue dress shirt of mine for the lining of the sleeves.


Using the Simplicity 9384 Snow White pattern, here is DD dressed as a beautiful, Snow White. 






Not too bad, eh?

Why so early for Halloween, you might ask?  I made it for the princess birthday party calicokitty had for her oldest DD just yesterday.  It turned out so well, DD will wear it for the Fall Harvest party (in lieu of Halloween) at church.

This reconstruction project is sorta special to me because I was 6 weeks preggo with DD in the bridesmaid picture, and I wore the blue velvet top one last time to a wedding when I was about 5 months preggo with her.  Just kinda of sentimental to me.

Thanks for letting me share!

Oooops!

I just saw the sticky that this was supposed to go in kids clothes.  Please forgive a newbie and feel free to move it, mods.

Sorry! Embarrassed

ETA:  Feel free to delete.  I posted in the correct form.

Definitely take your time, but post on here if you have any questions.  We have all been newbies at some point in time and I know anyone would be happy to help with reading symbols, interpreting directions, etc.  Good luck on your first project!

Very cute!  Your DD is a cutie too!

I hope you can get your sewing machine going so we can see the other one.

That sounds huge for ease!  Usually ease for children's patterns, depending upon the article of clothing is 3 inches.  I still don't like the amount of ease most patterns have because you end up with that boxy, homemade look. 

What I have started to do is measure my DD around the areas for the garment, in this case her waist and hips.  Then I measure an existing item and see how much ease there is.  I then adjust the pattern.   

I know that is a little vague,  but it is different for each project I sew. I hope you get the results you are looking for.

I just finished Snow White for my DD using the Simplicity pattern.  I usually like to go themed, so now I need to figure out what I can go as.  DH can be the prince, but what about me?Huh  Slim pickings for female characters in Snow White and I don't want to be the witch.  Hmmmmm....

This is a reconstruction BTW.  See my thread in children's completed projects.
