|Cost :||8.95 so far|
|So I'm putting this up because I was out today walking around and I go passed a charity shop, only to spot in the window this gorgeous aqua green dress in the exact basic shape of Ariel's new redesigned dress!!!!!!! |
This is one variant of many I wanted to do the moment I saw it, but like many characters/dresses on my wish list, I didn't put it up on here because I'm trying to focus on getting stuff done that isn't finished lol! BUT I saw this dress and HAD to have it, I know EXACTLY how to alter it, so it's accurate and what other layers to put on it etc. Just gotta get the other funds to finish it!!!
See journal on how I' gonna go about this dress. I do know though, I'm gonna take my time on it, and finish it when I'm ready to, then wear to whatever I can afford to wear it to. ^_^! Though I can see myself wearing it to general things like Disney related events and parties etc.
Update (Posted 30th June 2013)
Because of the work needed to make this as accurate as possible, and how much I adore the base dress and don't wanna ruin it, I'm going to be commissioning Teacup_Erinyes to work on my base dress and make it accurate to the 2D design.
I know I'm doing the right thing with this decision as not only is Teacup a good friend of mine, her work is absolutely stunning. Unsure of when it will be, probably the end of the year or something, but yeah. Just basically updating on the decisions being taken and stuff.
Base dress and plans for it (Posted 20th March 2013)
So for the base dress, this is what I'm going to do with it to make it more accurate.
1) Buy some darker green fabric and sew it over the bodice and skirt once I've separated each part of the dress.
That's it basically! This dress already has a underlayer lining and netting that makes it poof out a little bit which is already accurate to the amount that Ariel's dress floofs out lol!
