So here's the dress I made from the Incredibles pillowcase and sheet from the Goodwill AZ store I told you about yesterday:
It also makes you want to jump, so I'm told:
Because Melchett wanted a pretty full skirt so it could be extra swirly, I didn't have enough material in just the one pillowcase (also because the design was a solely vertical pattern, not random, I had to cut the pieces out in just one direction) so I popped back to the Goodwill store and bought a matching flat sheet from which you can see I took the side panels of the skirt.
Melchett has requested that I now make her two favourite teddies matching frocks (translation for Americans: dresses) from the material I've still got left.
Oh, and I promised to show you one of my other favourite shops where I popped to get a pink zip...here's Sally's Fabrics:
Yes I know I'm just a Brit who gets easily excited about things I expect America to look like because I've watched too many 50's movies :)
Inside Sally's Fabrics is fantastic too. It's huge, has a large area where they teach various sewing and quilting classes (including kids and teen classes which I think is just brilliant, passing on skills to the next generation is why I used to love teaching knitting classes).
And then there's all the fabrics, sewing machines and so much lovely haberdashery (notions)....I'm going to have to stop talking about it soon or I'm liable to drool on the keyboard. Why don't you check out their website for more pics and info.?
Ok, better get on making these teddy dresses because I saw some material whilst I was in Sally's that needs to be made into a dress for me for BurlyCon...
It has to be done :)
