Hi I'm Tang. I have been sewing for like... umm 2-3 months and have done one little dress and couple of skirts. So... I got an invitation to Teen Banquet that's in Medieval theme and required mask. I tried to find some Simplicity pattern of the dress last night but only found one that I like and it is this is one. (Well, the Simplicity pattern is on sale for the last day today at Joann's hehe)
Simplicity 4940 http://www.simplicity.com/p-2201-costumes.aspx
but then my host mom (Umm.. I'm an exchange student in the US ;] ) said that since I have this pattern > Simplicity 2757 http://www.simplicity.com/p-1702-costumes.aspx that I bought last time is probably works with the Medieval theme, but I want a sleeve like a 4940 one. So she said I don't need to buy that 4940 pattern that has a long skirt. (I like the B skirt on 2757 =] )
So...... the thing is, I never use a pattern to make anything before and I'm gonna add a sleeve to the 2757... Do you have any advise?
Oh... and since I am a beginner, I don't really know a lot of types of fabrics yet. I would like a not too fancy fabric that is kind of comftable to wear. And the color too... First I think I could do the dress with some light weigh natural fabric in light beigh color. But since the skirt I want is kind of shapy so I think I need a little more heavy fabric that is comfty to wear.
I am sorry for my poor english and experience. I think I will upload the drawing of what I want to do pretty soon. Thank you very much
Oh.. and I got a month to do this so I think I can do it!!!!! Right?
Wait!!! for the mask! What kind of mask will go with the middle age clothes??? I can't really think of it at all!
