Today we are showing our final project at Project Run and Play. Since it is signature look week, you all knew we were going vintage, didn’t you?
Grace’s dress is designed after a classic Shirley Temple dress, which fits her personality. The dress is made of white cotton and yards of swiss dot tulle with black bias tape around the hem. A rounded collar with a tulle overlay and puffed sleeves complete her look.
Each of the girls has a handmade “hoop skirt” under their dress to give it some extra fluffiness. The girls also have handmade ribbon wrist corsages and headbands to match.
Hannah’s dress was designed to mimic a 50’s style prom dress, but made to fit a little girl. The inspiration for this dress came from some handmade doll clothes that my grandma made for her girls, that my sister and I LOVED to play with. And my favorite dress of Sweet Sue doll was a black and pink tulle dress. So, that’s what I made.
The dress is a fitted bodice with a collar, vintage buttons and capped sleeves. The skirt of the dress is 10 yards of hand-pleated tulle that was sewn on in rows, and started making me seeing stars after a while 🙂 She also has a handmade black satin stole to cover her shoulders.
Ok, it’s your turn! Go VOTE!!!!
Thanks to Micalah and Project Run and Play. It has been CRAZY sewing hours (and quite a bit of stress at times) but it has been challenging and fun!!!
And our competitors, well, you all know. They are amazing seamstresses! We have been so inspired by their designs ourselves. Everyone has done SUCH an amazing job!
