In my free time in the evenings after college I have been pottering making a dress for my Build-A-Bear bunny I made for my 18th birthday (Called Georgia :) I managed to finish it tonight :P It is a little bit dodgy in places mainly because by the evenings the light in my room is pretty terrible! hahaha :oP
Here it is;
My inspiration was the beautiful African style dresses that Stefany (the dressmaker at the tailors I work at when I can) makes. I love them soo much I knew I had to try and make my own version and Georgia was moaning that she didn't have enough clothes (she is a bit of a diva :P) so I thought why not make one for her? :-)
I went with a one shoulder dress with a nice big collar/neckline, a diagonally attached flaring skirt and I even fully lined the bodice hehehe I think it gave me some practice at my pattern cutting skills that's for sure!
I will definitely be making Georgia some more outfits soon so I can try some more designs to practice. Which reminds me I think my Blythe girls need some love and attention in the fashion department too, they have been a bit neglected what with me starting uni- I will get on that over my holiday which is coming up soon.
I'm off to get some sleep now ready to continue my mask which is what we are making as part of out trying out of the props course (we do these little taster days of the other degrees at the college so that we can understand other peoples crafts and skills and respect their part in putting on a production :). Mine is going well... I think :P It is going to look a bit like Medusa I think, but we will see!
Here is the base of it that I have to paper mache:
lots of paper and gluing tomorrow.... lots!
Hahaha see you all soon, and please do check out my shop (just click the button at the side of the page :) as I listed loads of new items last weekend- lots of fun food brooches that I hope you will all like!
