I sew for stress relief. I've been sewing a lot this week. Mr Husband has donated a pile of old business shirts to my sewing stash and I've been thinking about refashioning (upcycling) them for awhile. Then I bought some tulle. Then I had a bad week. And out of that came the Princess Dress!
What do you think? I'm very proud of myself!!
So, I started with this old shirt.
Not much of it is left now. I'll keep the sleeves though, there's still potential there ;)
Scribbled an idea on some graph paper.
|My original idea. Funnily enough I don't think I looked at this |
once I started.
Had a lot of fun with some rolls of 6" tulle.
I used the original placket which I thought was a nice detail but was probably way more fiddly that starting afresh!
Threw it all together and before I knew it (OK, it actually took ALL day) we had a beautiful Princess in our garden!
I decided it needed a fabric brooch as the front is rather simple to compensate for the back :) Oh, and I love making fabric broochs!
|Cute as a button!|
|Did you want that back detail again Mummy?|
