I combined Mercy’s vision with my own evolving view point, which was inspired by Alice’s dress from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. If you know me at all, you know I’m a sucker for Tim Burton films and the always appealing Johnny Depp.
I’ve also been aching to try my hand at an eyelet corset because I love the look so much more than the easy peasy loop method. I spent a ton of time trying to decide what fabric I should use, but had no doubts when I saw Shabby Chic Treasures in purple. I mean, I can’t tell you how much I love this collection of fabric. I stalked all the online sites waiting for someone to restock.
Now, I wish I had some sort of tutorial to post for all of those reading, but this competition moves very quickly and there just isn’t time for that at the moment. I spent all of my spare time last week sewing, gathering, ripping seams, sewing, running to the store for trim and more needles, ripping seams, sewing, taking photos, editing photos and writing up the dreaded blog post. I fair much better with a needle and thread than I do with html, even in its simplest form.
So, hang in there and I will do my very best to come up with some tips and tricks on setting eyelets. In the mean time, I will also get to work on perfecting and writing the next princess dress pattern and tutorial.
