I'm a mother of three wonderful girls, ranging in age from very nearly 8 to a while now 11 (with a soon to be 10 in between).
I'm interested in renaissance faires.
I can sew, too.
You see where that will lead, do you?
Of course I get all kinds of costume related wishes from the girls, and sometimes (well, more like every time) I bow to their wishes.

This is my youngest daughter in her Snowwhite costume. You would have guessed, would you? Cheesy
The skirt originally was an old curtain of some vaguely shiny fabric. I had some scraps of blue velvet (the cheap kind pressed in all directions), red polyester, and some denim.
Used the poly to make a lining for the velvet and the inner parts of the sleeves. Reinforced the outer sleeves with a denim backing. Used two zippers for the inner front part of the bodice (I had some musings about just making a new, bigger part when she outgrows this... but forgot about the armpits. Too tight there). The apples grew by themselves in our garden... Wink

(The legend says "The consumption of apples in this costume is on your own authority..." in german. Face was deleted due to our no-kids-pic-on-internet-policy, not due to apple eating.)

Happy crafting,
Tutorial Contributor

First, I love this dress! It's absolutely wonderful, brilliant job! The slashed sleeves are wonderful and the zip up bodice is so clever. As for the underarms, that will be a puzzle to figure out but do post your solution when you come to it, I think that's a fairly common problem with favourite kid clothes.
Second, I will have to figure out how to do this with faces as I too have a no kids on the internet photo policy Wink.

The underarm solution was quite a quick one: sell to smaller kid. I just did not find a smaller kid for now...
To do this with faces... download GIMP (it's free software), use the clone stamp, press ctrl and click on pic for "source", then release ctrl and just click on desired target area, then it will paint it over with your chosen target. Easy peasy.

Hmmm... you think that would be a good entry for the tutorial challenge?
