11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a similar pattern/ "float dress"??? on: January 05, 2011 10:42:17 AM
My daughter wants this dress (link below) for father/daughter dance and Easter.  I cant find anything really similar... have you??  I am a fairly beginning/intermediate level sewer and I am not the most comfortable altering patterns a ton (certainly not creating my own!!!) 

Annnnnnd really dumb question, but do you buy the fabric pleated like that or is that something that you do yourself?

OMG!!! I will be making these for my volunteers where I work Smiley We are always trying to find something to tie in (I work in an Upper Class home in a living history museum... we always have afternoon tea!) for end of season gifts!

I had them stand against a light background took the picture and then used the outline tool in MS Picture It (the program I happen to have) and filled in with black.   Smiley  The lighter the background the better.  You can sort of see my daughter is a little crisper because my son had a shadow... buuuuut it was Christmas Eve and I didn't really have the time to redo them all.  Ha, lazy craftster that I am.

I made this for all the grandparents this Chrismas for about $10.  (well in theory, I messed up a few times so I had to start over).  Pretty easy, but they loved them!  I like them so much I think I am going to make me some (only, in orange not white!).

Thanks Smiley  It is plain but it had to be since she would have been fairly poor.  I am going to do one for the doctors wife next! I can get a little more elaborate Smiley

I am embarrassed to have to admit, but our head isn't period appropriate.  It is a Styrofoam head covered in muslin.   Embarrassed
16  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / 1875 Hat on: December 20, 2010 07:26:51 AM
I never know where to post hats... So here seems fitting.  I work in a 1875 era Living History museum in a millinery.  This is for the broomshop (factory) gal, so it has to be plain/ dark colors.  I opted for the elastic strap vs. relying on a hat pin.

Thanks! It is a pretty labor intense trade.  But, for my first I am very happy!  And yes... it is pretty much an awesome job  Grin Grin

I wasn't 100% sure where this belongs so here it landed...

I work as a Milliner in a living history museum that portrays 1875.  This is the first hat I have made!!!... annnd technically it is a bonnet.
