My Easter #DIY Dress and #DIY Cocktail Fascinator
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday. I had a great time with the fam and the hubby always plays the part of Jesus during the Easter play and so I video tapes just a minute or two of it for you guys to see (below). Now regarding this fabulous dress and cake topper, LOL…
Sometime between Monday and Saturday I lost my sewing mojo and could not for the life of me get the energy to finish this dress, sometimes it happens that way but I had a “LOOK” in my head for my outfit and I knew I wouldn’t be happy if I didn’t finish so around midnight I finally got er’ done!
I used my wiggle dress sloper which I created years ago from M2718 fitting shell pattern. This is a great idea for anyone who likes a certain style of dress because the shell helps me to make different design changes to a basic dress sloper AND saves me a ton of time since I have it made up in a muslin that I have already spent the time fitting to myself it makes it easy to recreate dress after dress without the headache of fitting every time.
The fabric is a glorious shade of yellow which is SO HARD to find but while I was at Michael Levine’s last month I saw it and bought like 4 yards, LOL they have some online HERE but not sure it will last long before selling out because the color is so rich and yummy. I then decided that my wiggle dress needed to have a little something special so I pulled out some tulle and made myself a cocktail fascinator 😉 this was so much FUN to make and I will be doing a tutorial!!
I wore this gold sparkly belt although you cant really tell how sparkly it is in the pic it was 😉 I bought it last year at Express and it just snaps in the back.
I hope you enjoyed your day like I enjoyed mine and I will leave you with a snippet of my hubby’s performance as Jesus.
