For the HSF 6th challenge: Farytale, I thought of doing something for “The Litle Mermaid” Ariel.
She does have some pretty dresses during the course of the Disney movie.“The Towns Dress”
“The Sail dress” (and I love this picture with Jennifer Lawrens “Golden globe dress” being compared to it)
“The Dinner Dress”
And “The Wedding dress”
Then there are lots of pretty styles designed by various artist around the world.
And my favourite…Edwardian Ariel.
Tis was the dress I originaly planed to make for this challenge But after mocking up the pattern on my dressform, and hating it, I decided to go in another direction.
So I started to search for sutable designs.
This dress is one step up in accuracy from the previous one.
And from there the step to real dresses was not that far.
And finaly arriving at this beautiful photo of two lovely edwardian ladies.I decided to try to reproduce the left one.
So now it is back to the sewing room…
