Today it’s time to tell you more about my Ariel dress I made for Sew It Up.Yesterday I told you some more about my cardigan and you can find the complete look here.
If you like my Ariel look I would love it if you gave me your vote.
I bought this mermaid skin sequins at Stoffenspektakel. The cool thing about this fabric is, if you rubb it up it becomes black mat. Very pretty. I can’t seem to find the card of the shop. The fabric is also from a designer, but I als can’t remember which one. My memory is letting me down. Too much sewing I guess.
De dress is completely lined with navy blue cotton.
The pattern is the Harlequin jurk from La Maison Victor
The fit is ok. It would have been better if it was a bit more fitted arround the waist. Well that what you get when making a zipperless dress.
I had to grade the buttom to a bigger size. And the butt was way to high for me. So I got those weird flaps. I also adjusted that. And I made the dress a bit shorter. Probably I’ll make it even shorter.
Nope, I’ve made a sequin dress before. But these sequins where a bit harder to sew.
This dress is loud, very loud. Combined with the cardigan I love to wear. I don’t know if I’ll be wearing this dress on her own any time soon. Maybe I would combined with a pretty purple belt. The dress on her own is a bit too much for me, but combined with something else I love it!
What do you think? Would you wear a loud dress like this?
I would love it if you vote for me.
Do I get your vote?
In this video you can see the effect of the dress really good.
