As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m starting the process of making the “perfect” Cinderella dress. For awhile now, I’ve been wanting to make another remake of the Ball Gown. Although my original remake turned out great, it wasn’t quite what I expected. I continued looking for the perfect fabric and eventually found it. Since then I’ve discovered even more sewing secrets from the dress and have been planning to put all my new findings into a dress for me. But my plans changed a week ago.
I got a surprise Etsy order….another Cinderella dress! It was completely unexpected due to the fact that past buyers contacted me quite a few times before actually purchasing.
After getting over the surprise, I offered my replica corset and hoop skirt, though expecting a “no.” But…. she said yes!
Next, I offered her dress upgrades, such as the fabric, handmade butterflies, and frills. I was thrilled….she said she’d take them!
I now have a corset, hoop skirt, and dress (taking over 100 hours) to make within 2 months. Also, since I’m already going through the lengthy process of making one dress, I’ll do double-duty and make a dress for myself. I’ll be busy, but I’m so excited!
Keep in touch, because I’ll be posting progress updates that will include photos, as well as a few tutorials.
During the process of making a dress, I must visit my Pinterest board devoted to Cinderella Ball Gown Research, not only for information, but just to browse. Seeing the beautiful photos of the dress always encourages me to move forward and to get. it. done!
With that, I leave you with a few of my favorite photos of Cinderella!
