This is going to be remade :) (Posted 9th June 2015)

Finally got round to amending this costume. I'm in need of a dress for the Kitaball so decided to have a go at this. Have a tone of this cream curtain fabric so I've decided to prize away the "Bark" texture of the underskirt and use that in the re-design :)

RE-visiting (Posted 30th January 2013)

This was pretty awesome when I made it (if I say so myself) considering this is the first full dress I ever made and without a pattern too. All made from the mind. Hopefully I get to wear this again. I'm gutted that I didn't get many pictures of me wearing it so am going to try do this for a future event! But it needs some work and looking back on it, wasn't very well made. I've lost weight since I first made this so adjustments will be made and I also dis-liked the way the top part of the dress hung on me. I don't think I darted it correctly so the sleeves kept slipping and the front gapping a little. It will be worn again in May for the Make-Believe Festival so hopefully I re-fashion it and get this to look awesome again! :)

Woohoo! (Posted 13th November 2009)


The patterns mostly cut out now, just need to start sewing it together. Feels great now its actually real pieces of material and not just a floating image bouncing around in me noggin.

The pic is the start of the top part which is ready now to be sewn. :D Also done the brown "underskirt" as well. Nwahhahaha. I'm so excited bout this now.
