When I found out about this challenge, I ran out to savers and found the perfect game for my idea: a Disney edition of Trivial Pursuit. The box and board were pretty beat up and a couple pieces were missing, so I focused on using the cards.
I wasn't really inspired by anything specific, but I had seen and liked the dresses made of cards last round so I thought I'd give it a shot with a different game/method/style of dress.
The top is taken from McCall's 5232 cut off right under the bust so the dress would have an empire waist. The bottom is box pleated clear vinyl, with the cards sewn between two layers so that I can flip it up and read both sides. I had to sew around each card so they wouldn't shift - such a pain!
Alright, on to the pictures!
Close up of the front, including the matching necklace I made from one of the pieces:

Full front:

back close up, sewing the zipper into the vinyl was quite an experience  Tongue

full back:

full lining in white because it shows through the clear vinyl:

in progress:

You can see what the cards look like here (plus a few of the hundreds of threads I ended up having to tie off):

And finally, a couple more action shots. I was trying to pose like Mickey here...

You can see here how the pleats open up so I can move. It's still pretty stiff though.


So that's it! I hope you like it! oh and, in case anyone was wondering (I know you were  Wink ) The capital of Djibouti is Djibouti.

 Grin  WOW this is great!  It does look very Snow White-ish so it fits the Disnet theme perfectly!  I can't imagine sewing all that vinyl . . .

AWESOME! I absolutely adore it and I'm adding it to my stash of things to make this lifetime. (Unless you volunteer to make one for me, I already have the game. Tongue) I'm so jealous!! Fabulously creative! Hitting this rocks!

Thanks everyone!
I didn't think of snow white until you said something, but I can see the connection now. I think it has to do with the color scheme.

FoxyMama: the vinyl was crazy to sew! It took me probably 12 hours or so to sew all the cards between the two layers, and like another 4 to tie all the threads off since I couldn't just back stitch.

AWESOME! I absolutely adore it and I'm adding it to my stash of things to make this lifetime. (Unless you volunteer to make one for me, I already have the game. Tongue) I'm so jealous!! Fabulously creative! Hitting this rocks!

haha I would offer, but I don't think I'm going to willingly work with vinyl for a long time now. Feel free to ask as many questions as you want though for when you make your own! I'd be happy to help  Smiley
