Super Snow White

This dress was a great collaboration between the customer receiving it and myself.
She had some great ideas that didn't turn out to be too hard and they look great.

I do have to admit I'm not looking forward to sewing velvet again, it's a pain!

She needed it to be bigger than her measurements so it has an optional insert in the back.
The sleeve band is covered in a gold lace to give it some extra spunk.
The Cape is optional, it has snaps at the shoulders to hold the weight and pins in the center front so it won't flip up.
She also asked for little beads along the collar as well for an extra touch of sweetness.

Mermaid in Fins

Each time I make a costume it comes out differently.
I like how each one turns out, or I wouldn't send them away,
it's great that even though I use the same fabrics,
basic patterns and construction techniques
they are each unique.
