As I was reading the themes for this season's P.R.&P. As soon as I read the details for the white sheet challenge I knew what I would be doing. You all remember Scarlet's white dress from the opening Gone with the Wind. But then I realized as much as I love the skirt...but HATE the top. There I said it I think it is ugly I hate the abundance of lace on the sleeves and neckline.
I didn't know what would go with all those ruffles, then I found this sweet website: How Do We Run On? I was inspired by all of Scarlet's fashion statements not just this one. Then I was reminded of her Honeymoon Outfit:
Boom, it hit me. Modern twist on classy designs.
The skirt is a circle skirt (based on the instructions from Dana Made it) rows and rows of ruffles. I finished the edges of the strips with a red rolled hem to give a decorative feature without the weight or fuss of lace. I used my ruffling foot to make large strips of ruffles until I had enough to make five rows ruffles, 2.5 inches in height. This took the full length of a king sized sheet 6 times cut at 2.75 inches (I lost some to my rolled hem). The red elastic is in place of her red band on her dress.
|I love this shirt with pants. And Ty had such a good time playing with the shirt and she loves the red covered buttons on the sleeve.|
