I used some fabric I bought some time ago, it had a moose on it and I also had a T-shirt with moose on it... So here's a moose dress. Doesn't much seem like a reconstruction to me, it's the biggest project I had in a long time. Cheesy

So here it is! (appologies for the shotty pics, took them with my webcam, the camera is out of service.)

bigger image -> link

update feb 17th: added tutorial for the bow top. (also posted as a separate topic). Please comment and let me know if there's something you're confused about or can't read in my handwriting. Cheesy

update feb 18th: more of the tute.




update may 29th
I have just realized that I never finished this tute! Cheesy Terrible terrible me!

Well, the skirt goes like this (I don't think pics are necessary for this part). Get a length of fabric about two to three times your own waist.

Hem the bottom.

At the top, you make a fold for the elastic band - I used one about a quater of an inch thick from some (blushes) VS panties. lol. Measure it so it will sit comfortably on your waist.

Loop the band through, sew it together, now you've got your basic skirt. tada. To make this a true dress, attach the skirt to the top. Voila! Dress is done.

Thanks for looking!

You found out my secret - I haven't joined the two yet. But I intend to finish doing darts on the skirt and just sew it on to the extra fold I've made. Hide the seam by going over a previous seam, stuff like that. Haven't had the time to do the darts. Cheesy But, shhh! Don't tell anyone of my laziness.
