Love the style of the dress!
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old Sweaters into Slouchy Hats- the easy peasy way! on: January 21, 2012 09:42:10 PM
After many errored times using this tutorial:
http://craftgrrl.livejournal.com/11048797.html
I came up with my own way- the lazy way.
Instead of cutting out all the pieces individual- I cut out just one piece!

I figured it out by looking at a knit beanie/hat I already had and realized that it was one piece- not three, four or six pieces!


Taking an old knit sweater, I took the measurement from another beanie and measured along the bottom of the sweater (using the ribbing that's already there- so we don't have to cut it off and reattach later). I then drew this:

I sewed up the sides first, making it into a tube- then sewed the other ends together finishing it off. (I'm not really sure how to explain this- but once you have it sewn into a tube you can pin and figure out which sides go where)


So in the end I got this:


I probably could have made it a little shorter- but I like having it a bit longer.

I also made a little bow for it and sewed it on.

I also wore white thigh highs with red bows I got at Walmart, just black shoes (not yellow). I also did my makeup purple.
I had to redo my zipper last minute because my previous one wasn't long enough and I had to cut myself out of my dress...
I wore this last night and I was freezing! It was a fun night.

I would just go with general fairy. As long as you have some wings, you should be good. Also, that fabric is lovely and I'm sure you will make a beautiful dress out of it!

That's really great! You did an awesome job on the construction! Silky types of fabric still intimidate me and I've been sewing for years!
