1  A vintage Butterick for Grandma's funeral in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by princess nell on: February 07, 2007 06:50:58 PM
So, my Grandma died last fall and as a sort of weird homage to her, her daughters and granddaughters all made red dresses for the funeral. We did this because she taught our family to sew and her favorite color was red.
Anyway, I inherited her patterns, so I used one of them to make my dress (with a lot of help from my mom!).
The pattern is Butterick 7750

And here's me in my dress....I added waitress cuffs because the sleeves seemed a little blah as they were.


And a big thanks to my dog for getting in the shot!

Thanks for the sleeve idea!
Now, I finally have a use for all the shoes my dogs have chewed on a little.... note the split strap on the left, arrgh. And my best friend just gave me a bunch of too-small sweaters....


Ta da!

I used a little tube of white icing, bought at the grocery store near the birthday candles. Maybe also called decorating icing.
Something like this:

This is my first, based on a L.C. Tiffany stained glass window. I got the outlining in July and have been out of money ever since- no color for me (at least for awhile!). Fortunately it doesn't look too bad in b&w.

How did you all do the edges since they have a bend to them? Is there a trick I missed?
No trick. For mine, the pictures overlapped the edges when I glued them on. I then ran an exacto around the table edges after they'd dried a little; they cut off nicely!

Here's a picture from just before I cut the edges off.

I just finished tonight- sorry about the dark pic, but I couldn't wait to post!.



You can't really tell, but the legs are now "chrome", not brown. And the glue isn't completely dry yet, which you  can see in the bottom pic. I'm pretty tickled!
