Sorry for the delay folks. I have not been on Craftster lately. Darned life! Why must it get in the way of Craftster?
Anyway my Sally looked like this
It was very simple to do - like cake.
I started with a vintage slip. A really plain one because I could not bring myself to ruin a fancy one. It is a good idea to start with one that is a little large on you.
Starting with a few screen shots from the film I collected pieces of fabric as close to the original patterns and colors as I could find.
I put the slip on a dress form and just using "draping" techniques I then pinned the scraps to the slip in the arrangement/ shapes they were in on Sally's dress.
After I got everything pinned I sewed all of the scraps onto the dress with embroidery floss in black - using all of the 6 strands and being very UNcareful with the stitching - looking at the pictures as I went along.
Be sure to keep trying the slip on as you go to make sure you have not pulled the slip too much in some of your stitches. You can pull the material quite a bit and then make the slip too small to fit you (Thus the reason for getting a slightly bigger slip).
For the arms and legs (since hers are kinda blue) I took two pairs of white tights and sprayed them with aqua colored fabric spray paint and watered them immediately so the color would be as light as possible. Then I cut the crotch & toes out of one pair so I could fit them over my head and hands. (Head in crotch hole- hands in feet)
I took both pairs of tights and sewed stitch lines on them with black embroidery floss again, looking at the picture of Sally as I went along to make them similar to the lines in her skin.
It's just that easy. Remember - she's like a rag doll -so the perfection is in the imperfection, but keep looking at the pictures so you don't get off track.
The wig was a really carpy one I bought from the D-ney store and it was awful. It was their "Sally" wig and it looked like Raggedy Ann, that's why I have my Jack hat that I made on with it in the pix.
If there are any questions - please feel free to ask. If I did a carp job describing it - let me know too.
