|Time Taken :||3 hours|
|My original planned costume for the Saturday wasn't going to be finished in time so rather than rush it I nipped out to the fabric shop 9am Friday morning of the expo and grabbed the fabric.|
6 metres of blue klona cotton to make the 8 panelled skirt which to be honest is a bit heavy, it doesn't drape as I think it should but I was pressed for time XD Need to take the hem up a couple of inches before I wear it again.
2 metres of powder blue cotton jersey with some bias binding to finish the neckline.
1 metre of navy klona cotton for the bodice, which is lined and interfaced. I had some trouble with this and have plenty of fabric left over so I think I'm going to make myself a new one that is both longer and boned.
Left over klona cotton and interfacing to make the headbow. Need to make tails for that but it's otherwise complete. It's sewn to the wig because I had no clips OTL Bow tutorial here ---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yA7_lYJwIrM&feature=channel_video_title
I wasn't actually planning on doing this costume for a while so although I had an Ariel wig, which I wore, it wasn't styled...hence why there's no massive signature fringe XD Give it time give it time XD
Had so much fun flouncing about as Ariel, had some good giggles with the disney group and little children were tugging my skirt for pictures. It was so cute.
