Wearing My Childhood
Just like the Return of the Jedi Dress, these dresses are also from vintage bed sheets. I took the pattern from Vogue V9202 and made both sleeveless.
One huge comment I have about these dresses..... THE TWIRL GAME IS STRONG WITH THESE. They had the perfect amount of swoosh that I like in my dresses.
The Ariel dress that I made, I used the Yaya Han Mermaid Oil fabric that is 95% Polyester 5%Spandex. It was extremely easy to work with , until I had to hem the bottom, that was a tad tougher.
After having done the Return of the Jedi Dress and The Jasmine Dress, it was a breeze to get this dress together.
I'd say it took me 10 hours per dress.
Overall my goal was to take a fabric from my childhood and make it into something I could wear to a convention or just around town. This is eco-friendly as well, so there's a huge plus in my book!
One of my favorite sayings I made from working on these: "I'm wearing my childhood!"
