How is everyone??
I’ve been busy working on a Halloween outfit for a friend, Mrs E is heading to a Halloween Ball. And was on the search for A specific dress….. Mr E is going as Mr Soft, Drum roll please
dum dum bang bang dum dum!!
(My drum roll!!)
I’ve had fun with this dress, it took a lot of rummaging trying to find the right pattern to alter.
I eventually went with this vintage McCall’s 7356….This was a great dress pattern to based the dress on….
The neckline was also made wider to make it more “off the shoulder”. I added extra organza to the neckline to act as a facing/bias tape which I hand stitched in place.
I also made the bottom half of the dress a circle skirt to gain the drape, as the closest I could get in colour was organza, The lining is china silk lining….. I left a side slit in the skirt section, and used a rolled hem stitch to finish off the edge.
A look inside!!
I have to say I CAN’T wait to see it on Mrs E…. It will be winging it’s way over tomorrow.
Are you making anything for Halloween??
I plan on lots of pumpkin carving and a watching the fireworks on the night…. Derry goes MAD at this time of year!! The boys keep changing their mind on what they want to be, vampire has been a firm fave for the last 3 days though!!
