CraftingCon: Stylin’ Snow White

September 9, 2014

craftingCon

Way back a loooong time ago I mentioned something about CraftingCon. Well, it’s here! And I’m a competitor for the Princess month! Don’t worry, it’s nothing that you need to vote on, but I hope you’ll check out the other competitors over at Friends Stitched Together. If you’re looking for some inspiration, head on over to Mae & K for some fun tutorials too!

 

I used the Fawn Lily dress as the basis for my Snow White look. It has such amazing color-blocking possibilities, that I knew it was the perfect pattern to get the look I was going for. Now, I hadn’t really thought through the coloring of a Snow White dress. As I’m sure you’ve probably noticed, J doesn’t wear a lot of primary colors. I just can’t do it! So when I was trying to come up with ideas for this contest, I just couldn’t get past the colors of the “usual” Snow White dress. Also, after shopping my stash, I realized that I didn’t have those colors anyways! So this is what I came up with:

Blue chambray for the sleeves, a polka dot cotton for the bodice, and yellow crepe for the skirt. I’ve used all of those fabrics in past projects so I definitely made good on my stash!

I made a little head band that matched the red trim on the dress. The trim was an easy mod, and I love it!

J loved the dress! It’s a very subtle nod to the original Snow White dress…she was the first Official Disney Princess- did you know that? I love that it hints of Snow White but is definitely NOT a costume!

We got lots of funny photos because of the apple, of course πŸ™‚

This was a fun little challenge that got me out of my sewing comfort zone! I’d say J got right into it too!

Happy Sewing!
