31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / two dresses, one fancy one casual on: May 04, 2009 10:23:58 AM
here are my two newest creations!

My friends decided to have a prom party this weekend (they're all in college, and i'm a college graduate, but you can never be too old for prom, right?), and so i needed to whip up a fun dress. I had this blue fabric for years, i bought it when i was first in college because i thought it was really pretty, but then it turned out to be SO impossible to work with. so i threw it to the bottom of my stash, and every few months i'd pull it out, admire the colors, get annoyed with how it unraveled, and throw it back again.  So, to solve the unraveling problem, i cut out the pattern pieces for the bodice in fusible interfacing, then i just fused it right onto the fabric and cut around it. it totally worked. i couldn't do the same for the skirt, but i left the bottom edge raw because i actually like the way it looks as it unravels. If this were a dress that i would wear often, that would be a problem, but i may never again wear it. I sewed the tutu bits in by hand so the skirt would be really big and poofy. it was so fun to wear!

for the bodice i used New Look 6557. i just cut the pieces for it, but i didn't actually follow the pattern. the skirt i just made up myself.  and my dress form doesn't fill it out very well (she's not very chesty).

this dress i made from McCall's M5804. I love it, i can't stop wearing it. and it was really easy to make. that's about all i have to say about it.

thanks for looking!

this is stunning. i am amazed at the amount of detail in the rugs, and profoundly impressed at the dedication it must have taken to make them. i wish i could have one! you're mother in law is stellar.

I love them all.  I think the first one is my favorite.
 The embroidery on the yellow dress is fabulous!!  I just made my Easter dress out of the same New Look pattern.  It was an easy pattern although there was one part where I think I stared at the pattern for 10 min trying to figure out what they meant...  But that could have been because it was 1 in the morning.  Smiley  Did you find that the sizing on it was off?  I had to take mine in about 2 inches on each side on the bodice.   
Excellent job. 

the sizing was off, but i think that had more to do with my body type than the pattern itself. i had to make the bust a size 12, and the rest of the dress a size 14. luckily it worked out to do it that way.
