|Time Taken :||1 month|
|This is my version of Sookie's "Vampire Bait" red & white dress she wears the first time she goes to Fangtasia in Season 1.|
The actual dress was made by Audrey Fisher for the show, so can't be bought anywhere.... so I had to make my own.
I sourced the fabric with closest pattern I could find (had to get it shipped in from America) and bought a halter dress pattern - which had to be amended to add in the bodice like Sookie's.
Luckily mum has an A level in dressmaking, so was a massive help with this project. She made most of it, though I was responsible for working out how to do the bodice bit [ended up sewing fabric to a strapless bra, then attaching it to the rest of the dress]
So so happy with it.
Wore it for the first time at Bitten 2 - True Blood convention in Northampton earlier this month.
