Violet Beauregarde is a little girl who chews gum all the time. She wins one of the golden tickets to visit Willy Wonka’s factory, and, despite a warning not to try the blueberry meal chewing gum, she does and turns into an enormous blueberry.
I chose a pattern published in Burda magazine nr. 10/2010, full volume dress. I used approx 4 meters of sequined purple satin and 3 meters of dress netting, also in purple.

dress netting £1.35/m; glitzy satin in purple, £4/m from a local store;
