i finished this and blogged about it ages ago but somehow it never made it over here so i thought id share it now :0) better late than never i suppose huh?



you can find all thie links and things i used to make this dress in my full post over here
http://convivialcrafter.blogspot.com/2009/05/my-new-faire-dress.html
basically the skirt is a tube gathered to a bodice. the chimese was made from this pattern
http://www.butterick.com/item/B6196.htm?tab=list/costumes&page=all
and as i have said before i relaly like this chemise pattern except its waaaaaay too short. it needs to be about 3 feet longer so include that in your yardage if you want to make it.
i made the bodice starting with this generator. its fully boned with wide cable ties. they worked great! ill never pay for boning again. the dress is made of cotton twill. i like the way it hangs and its not too hot either even though its a fairly heavy weight fabric.
