Ophelia's Cotton Candy Dress

Added Jun 16, 2010

Japan, Japan






Hola friends,

I have 2 more weeks to the craft fair and still need to sew more than 5 clothing. I didn’t know how hard it is to prepare for a craft show. I haven’t had any day off this month from sewing. At least, I am enjoying this, so it’s good.

Today, I finished this Cotton Candy Dress. I named it just because it’s so sweet;)
As you probably noticed, it’s the same design as Dress for a big girl. Minor alternation is the shape of collar and belts instead of buttons.
I made necklace and earrings by shell beads as well.

I actually don’t purchase expensive fabrics so much, but this one was little pricey. There is sometime you can’t control yourself, and I was there…

Material Notes

cotton, zipper




Garment Type
Bridal, Classic, Romantic, Vintage

    Wow this is so beautiful and fits awesomely! What pattern did you use? Or did you draft it to your measurements?

      Thanks, I used Simplicity 6670. But the size mentioned is little bigger, so you can make the allowance to 1" instead. Well, that what I did.

      Thank you! I used basic dress pattern from Simplicity 6670. Neckline and collar were modified by me.

      Hello, thank you!!
      Well, I usually make 3 to 4 clothing per week. I have time to sleep, but no time to play and go out! Still it’s my choice though;)
