Hey everybody. It is late, I am tired, but more than anything bummed.
Have you seen TinkerBell movie?
Queen Clarion flies in to Pixie Hollow donning a lovely yellow dress...I want to create/replicate for my teen. Found a pattern: http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5232.htm??tab=evening_prom_bridal&page=1
But I am at a loss when it comes to material. I was thinking yellow lining and some kind of beaded overlay (you know so that it glows/shines) but I can't find ANYTHING for the overlay.
When Tink is "born" she is created from a dandelion seed. Her first dress is a cute little white thing. I want to create something similar for my 4 year old. I was thinking a knit tube dress but I don't know how I would re-create the texture. At first I was thinking long fringe gathered at the waist with a satin ribbon would both give the texture and movement. But I don't know if I could get it and I don't know how practical it is with a 4 yr old.
I may sound crazy but the movies artwork is unbelieveable. I have never been inspired by a cartoon. Some of the other outfits are (the other seasons outfits) are equally beautiful but well beyond my limited abilities. I think that I could be successful with these two projects if I could only figure out the fabrics.
