When not out messing with those vile little fruits, I've been working on costumes for Seussical, specifically dresses for Whos. I'm supposed to make 8 of the 12 dresses needed.
The original concept was to have these be yellow, but we're relying on donated fabric, so there is much orange in the mix. The pattern is McCall's 6418.
This iteration features a fabric from Amy Butler. Wow, I've never used this brand before -- it's really lovely to work with, and so very soft.
Version 2 leaves off a ruffle, and adds some yellow ribbon. The sash will be bright yellow.
I thought some big yellow buttons would be a nice touch on this one, but have no budget for them. But we DO have yellow Sculpey, so Annabeth used it to make a variety of buttons for me this afternoon. Since it's for Seuss it's appropriate that they be sort of organic in shape.
Much more to come, obviously.
