Last week I was in St. Malo and Paris, therefor I had little time with my dolls, but today I’ll post some pictures of my newest finished dresss for Naomi!
I Never made a long dress before, as I’m always struggling with the shape of the skirt. But because I had a very light fabric in my stash (polyester crepe) and because it is summer, I decided to make a wide circle skirt.
I knew from the beginning on that I wanted to embroider the upper part of the dress. First sketch:
I was actually inspired by a wallpaper – the wallpaper in Sherlock’s living room, from the BBC series “Sherlock“.
I changed it a bit while stitching, but I’m still happy with the result. That’s how it turned out:
It’s actually quite different, but I think you can still see the insiration..
Now some pictures of the whole dress!
