Snow White's Progress...
Day 2 - Bodice complete, sleeves attached:
Day 3 - Skirt panels sewn together, gathered, and attached to bodice, but we still need a zipper:
Day 4 - Zipper installed... so dress is complete except for hemming!
I'm pretty happy with this zipper. I didn't realize my sewing machine came with a zipper foot (duh) until now. So, I used it this time, and I think this is the best zipper I've done. Amazing how the proper tool can make a job so much easier!
I will try the dress on the Little Snow White tonight and mark where the hem should be. I have a feeling this little dress is very, very, very long and will need a lot of hemming. Then, I shall sew her up! I'll probably finish it tonight after Katie Anne gets in bed.
I am seeing that this skirt isn't nearly as poofy as I expected or wanted it to be. The doll-sized dress calls for a tulle underskirt to be made for extra fluffiness. I didn't buy the tulle yet in case I needed to make a Katie Anne-sized tulle skirt, too. Looks like I'll need to do that! I'm also going to try it on with the long pantaloons I made for Katie Anne's Easter Dress (if I still have them... wonder where they are... hmm?) and see if that helps with fluffing up the skirt.
