Here’s another outfit I made last spring, in the early days of learning to sew. Unlike Ellen’s Easter dress though, I loved this gown as soon as I made it, even though it wound up being almost as difficult, in its own way. The lavendar fabric was so very slipper to sew with. I sewed the rosebuds on with clear thread which snapped every few flowers. I was adapting a pattern for the first time in my life (this Italian Renaissance Dress from Carpatina). And it had so many pieces that I didn’t think could possibly go together in the end.
Well they did! And Tinuviel wound up with those beautiful, light, lavender birthday gown.
