well not really, but ive completed [!] two projects in the last two nights.
90's eddie bauer dress that i cut apart and added a ruffle ala this pin:
from gcb [good christian bitches] which is a hilarious show on abc. the desperate religious petty housewives of dallas. based on the book of the same name.
and i made another petticoat! here is the crappiest tutorial ever:
step 1: do some math. determine waist measurement and length [remember pi*d is circumference and pi*r^2 is area. not helpful]. i can scan in my little drawing if that helps.
-edit- here is my scan:
step 2: get fabric accordingly. i purchased 6 yards of 54" tulle, 2 yards of 1.5" satin ribbon, and 20 yards of 3/8" ribbon...which i didnt use that much of.
step 3: cut that shit out. i found pinning the 4 layers together and putting the curious kitty in another room helped a surprising amount.
step 4: baste around the waistband and in a long rectangle [4-5"] down one side, carefully cut open
step 9: give up after one layer.
step 10: fin!
id say it makes my minnie mouse dress look pretty fab no?
