Fun Sewing Request

I got a request to make a few costumes for a fall festival a few weeks ago and while I couldn't make everything I was able to make 2 dresses. They couldn't decide on which dress style they wanted and asked if I could combined the styles.

This is a sketch I did before making the dresses its not the best, but it gives the general idea.

I wasn't able to get really good pictures of the dresses before I had to ship them; Due to a couple of days of gloomy/rainy weather but I was able to take a few.


After, several tries with the sleeve holes I was finally able to get them all shaped some what the same. I Have no idea how other people do it! Need less to say I don't think I want to make these style sleeves again. Not that I don't like the challange, but I spent a whole day messing with them then I needed to go to bed, so it took me more like a day 1/3 and they really are not fun to make. 


  1. Wow! Great job, Jessica! I REally like the dark blue dress.

    Such a talented person!

  2. Yes, I just have to agree... beautiful, especially the blue dress!

  3. Wonderful job Jessica! they both look so lovely, but I especially like the dark blue dress :-)

    You are so clever!

  4. OH my GOODNESS!!! You are AMAZING at sewing! That's crazy! I love those. I could never make anything like that, especially the wonderful detailing on the blue dress(I want the blue one for myself! :)

  5. Hello again,
    I just thought I would let you know that I have an award waiting for you over at my blog. :)


  6. What a fantastic job. I had to make a medievil costume for my daughter and as you can see from my blog, it looks more armish wear than medievil :-( My daughter loved it tho so I'm still happy :-)
