Lindsay's Dress

So here's the recent birthday gift/dress. I think of it as Little Bo Peep's Princess dress. There's some "poof" to this creation. Netting type material I had on hand. No pattern, though I did a sketch or costume design drawing first. I took some theatre courses back in the 90's. Funny how that liberal arts education is serving me now. This dress had a lot of figuring out as you sew issues. For example the pink bands in the skirt were added when I realized I'd mismeasured (and had already cut). My model Rubes couldn't walk in the mermaid fit so I added the pink parts for flare and fullness.
Hard to see but there's some pleating going on in the sleeves and poof of the skirt.

My favorite part is the rich satin bow. I found that fabric at the thrift store for a $1 a yard!

Now I'm off to work on a Birthday dress and some mermaid tails.
