Then I'll take a try on drafting it myself. Come to think of it, I have to alter so much using patterns, the difference ought to be small...

It looks great on you. It even looks great on its own. Cheesy
Would you mind linking the pattern, if possible and allowed?
I'd love to have such a great dress myself... Smiley

And I have an urge for tulips.
Luckily, I can have as many as I want whenever I want them.

Watercolor pencil with ball pen on paper, ca. 20 cm * 10 cm.

So my best friend has a daughter, too, but can't sew. We went shopping together, and she ended up with a silky-shiny polyester two shades of violetpurplerosesom ething. Me, I ended up with a good friend asking me if I could sew her daughter a nice costume.
Guess I could and wanted to do a Rapunzel-themed costume anyway. So here I proudly present to you Miss Rapunzel:

Seems we got here a little early cause she's still working on the embroidery on her skirt. Well, never mind, that's taken care of.

...as you can see.

These are acrylics on canvas, app. 30 cm x 40 cm.

I also do them in blacknwhite (or, more correctly, in grayscale).
But sometimes I go all over the top and use oilpastels just the way I like to!

Yayyyy colorssssss!

Did I mention I love colors?

Hmmm... you think that would be a good entry for the tutorial challenge?

Thank you. MissingWillow, it certainly were the colors that drove me to paint them.
craftylittlemonkey, I'm sorry for your aunt, but the leaf is already sold. Wink
lovesclutter, thanks for the rocks, will at once start with dry gardening! Cheesy

The underarm solution was quite a quick one: sell to smaller kid. I just did not find a smaller kid for now...
To do this with faces... download GIMP (it's free software), use the clone stamp, press ctrl and click on pic for "source", then release ctrl and just click on desired target area, then it will paint it over with your chosen target. Easy peasy.

I'm a mother of three and painting, sewing and crafting in my free... ah, make that in my few spare moments time.
I love painting in oil, and I love flowers. So I made these, all on canvas, 50 cm by 70 cm:

Happy crafting,

I'm a mother of three wonderful girls, ranging in age from very nearly 8 to a while now 11 (with a soon to be 10 in between).
I'm interested in renaissance faires.
I can sew, too.
You see where that will lead, do you?
Of course I get all kinds of costume related wishes from the girls, and sometimes (well, more like every time) I bow to their wishes.

This is my youngest daughter in her Snowwhite costume. You would have guessed, would you? Cheesy
The skirt originally was an old curtain of some vaguely shiny fabric. I had some scraps of blue velvet (the cheap kind pressed in all directions), red polyester, and some denim.
Used the poly to make a lining for the velvet and the inner parts of the sleeves. Reinforced the outer sleeves with a denim backing. Used two zippers for the inner front part of the bodice (I had some musings about just making a new, bigger part when she outgrows this... but forgot about the armpits. Too tight there). The apples grew by themselves in our garden... Wink

(The legend says "The consumption of apples in this costume is on your own authority..." in german. Face was deleted due to our no-kids-pic-on-internet-policy, not due to apple eating.)

Happy crafting,
