A few years back, I posted about the “perfect” Cinderella dress. I never posted finished photos, nor the process, mostly due to not taking enough photos.
A year later, I was blessed to create a second, upgraded, Cinderella dress for a customer…this time I took photos!
In order to create the bodice fabric, I glue 5 different fabrics together. As the glue drys, I pinned the the pattern piece to the form. This way, the piece was formed in the perfect shape!
“Glueing fabric” sounds bad, but I use a spray adhesive that only puts a light amount on; perfect for keeping the several fabrics together!Here’s a tip for the perfect bodice…cut the fabric on bias!The first step for creating the bertha: attaching the several pieces of fabric and then gathering the center front and back.
All that’s left is to add the butterflies! I hand-make them for the upgraded version. There you have it; the “perfect” Cinderella dress! Truth be told, this is my absolute favorite Cinderella dress I’ve ever made!
~ All Finished ~
Here’s some photos of my lovely costumer in the dress!
Thanks for looking and learning with me!
