The deadline for this photo challenge has been extended – lucky me! I was very busy in the past weeks. I’d like to share with you my construction process of Merida’s dress for Alexandra.
Drawing the pattern. I used a suede-like non-stretchy dark blue fabric for the dress and a calico for the “underdress”.
My first pattern. It showed to be too loose around Sashenka’s waist but the change was minimal. Front and back parts are identical except the fastening on the back and a lacing on the front.
Sleeves with the inserted calico stripes. I chose not to make a full underdress because it is not very pragmatic to add more layers to a such small project like doll clothes.
The neckline pinned at its place.
Are you curious how will this turn out? I surely am!
