Description

I’ve just realised one very cool thing about having a dres makers doll. I can take photos of what I make! (very handy when you don’t have a partner to do it).

A lovely gentleman I know had a 90th birthday party. I wanted something very festive and was perhaps a little over dressed (pooey I say!) .

I just got this photo in the mail even though it’s very pixelated. It must have been printed from the computer.

Bodice is a silk velvet which is quite thin so I had to put very stiff interfacing and a layer of wadding to make it nice and flat. Lots of time went into removing any wrinkles.

Skirt is a beautiful silk organza I found a while ago with little red bows. I underlined it twice with silk lining and tulle to give it some umpff.

It’s very girly and perhaps a little too young for me now but I loved wearing it.

(I should have ironed it before taking photos.)

    You look amazing in that dress. So original and so pretty. Great job on getting that bodice to lie flat. That must have been a test! :-)
