Decora Girl event

Here are the promised photos.  I’m not too happy with the hairpieces.  Especially the big bow… I couldn’t get it to sit right.  But overall… V looks SO cute!!

I guess V is kind of a snob… being the Queen V and all, I felt like keeping Decora classy was the way to go with her.  So this is what came out of that.  Some beads, a flower pin, a big bow, and a couple of cheap hair pins I purchased.  Coincidentally I found a small bracelet that spells out Victoria… I wonder who made it for me… it’s been sitting in my treasure chest for years !!

I’m glad I got to do the Decora challenge because now I know V looks cute in pink.

A shot of the socks… the left sock is too big.  I’ll have to re-make it. *Needs shoes desperately!!

Cute little girl!! Waaa I love sewing for my girls.

Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoyed as much as I loved putting this outfit together ^^

DoA Decora girl project–WiP

I joined the next round of the sewing project on DoA.  This time, the theme was Decora girl.  I did not like this style too much and do not feel as though it fits any of my girls.  I’m more of an Elegant Gothic Lolita fan.  I guess you could say its that Victorian-inspired fashion running through my veins. However, I still wanted to join so I decided to tone it down a little bit.

I was very much inspired by this “toned down” Decora outfit:

And I ended up using a pattern I bought here.

These are some of the progress pictures… tun tun tun!!!

I wanted to create a PINK dress since that is very much quintessential Decora.  The purple and white fabric at the bottom is actually a scarf that I do not wear because I do not like it, so I decided to upcycle it and make mismatched socks–since this is also a Decora trait.

Some progress pictures… and…

Tune in again for the finished outfit… I just really need to finish a headband and an accessory to cover up a mistake I made on the dress.
