After seeing Frozen, my 9 year old granddaughter made this pic of the dress she wanted me to sew her for Halloween.
It’s been on my fridge since then. So, the end of September, I gathered her up and we went to JoAnn’s to purchase the fabric and pattern, Simplicity1233 .
She chose all of it—and decided to go with white organza for the sleeves and cape thing. It looked so much better against skin than the blue… I also checked with the other grand girls to see if anyone else needed a dress, so I was making three of them. And Addie wanted to modify the pattern to have sleeve wrist points and the cape to drag the floor. *See her pic*
Md is for Maddie and Mk is for Makinley. When you sew one seam, then you do the same seam for all. I decided to serge around the hem for the organza. I bought those snowflake ornaments from Walmart for the cape—they come 20 for about $2.00 and beats appliqueing each piece—that’s what the pattern wanted.
I figure they can always be replaced for that price as they get torn up. And they are so sparkly! As I was sewing these dresses, I came to the realization that they were really gowns—Miss America would be proud to wear this!
I LOVE the way they turned out!
