The Details

Ok! Zooey wore her beautiful party dress yesterday, and I feel a little better about it now. It was a hit!

I used the tutorial from here (which was fabulous, by the way!), except I had to completely resize it from a 2T to a 9mos, which proved to be a bit of a challenge! But in the end, it turned out beautifully!

As well as trying out a new dress design, I also lined an article of clothing for the very first time!

I attached the thin muslin lining (after cutting it to match the rest of the dress) along the shoulder, arm hole, and diagonal chest piece.  The rest of it hung freely under the dress, so that she had some freedom of movement.

If I had more photos, I would post them.  BUT!  I was too tired to take photos of each step, for which I apologize.  Maybe for the next project I will be a little more on top of things.

Happy Weekend everyone!  I hope you enjoyed reading!

 

PS–Do you have any lining tips??

About lilyellowbird

I am a 22-year-old stay-at-home mom (returning to school in the fall of 2011) who is choosing my family, sewing, crafting, repurposing, and general life stuff to occupy my time. Here you will find updates on the new and exciting (Zooey just got two teeth!) and different things that I am trying (dyeing fabric a nice teal blue for a circle skirt). Since Wardrobe Refashion is now closing, I will not be able to sign up and post new things on their website, but here is where I would like to publicly "take the pledge", so to speak, and rework, refashion, and otherwise make my family's clothing for the next two months. I will post photos once a week (if at all possible) of new projects, etc. Stay tuned!
