A few weeks ago, the lovely people at Kollabora contacted me about doing a project with Dear Stella fabric. This is what they sent me, and here's what I made!
I love how this fabric is like confetti polka dots! I felt like it needed to be the perfect party dress.
I used a combination of Simplicity 2588 for the bodice, Simplicity 1873 for the skirt, and a little inspiration from The Party Dress Book by Mary Adams.
I made a crinoline for underneath, just to add a little extra volume. It was super easy! I just bought the crinoline netting, gathered it, and sewed it onto the bottom of a slip.
My favorite detail! If you look closely, you'll see a smattering of sequins along the bottom edge. I hand sewed gold sequins randomly for about 4-5 inches on the bottom hem. So time consuming, but so worth it!
I love how it turned out! Thanks to Kollabora and Dear Stella for the fun project!
