|That is not her doll, its her friend's and boy was she excited when she found it!|
By the time it took me six hours I don't know if was a top of a good deal, but considering it was christmas break and I'm a stay at home mom, it probably wasn't too bad of a deal. Not to mention I learned a lot while sewing these sleeves. I'm pretty sure these sleeves should have not taken 6 hours, but I'm not a seamstress I'm a crafter. Plus if you haven't figure it out yet on this blog I'M TERRIBLE at following directions!!! Not to mention you have to start by making your own sleeve pattern which totally paralyzed me.
Part of the reason it took a long time, is did french seams, because I didn't want the dress to fray and I wanted it to be comfortable. But part of it is I don't have a lot of practice with satin, it handles a lot different than cotton calico, so it was just hard for me. But like I said, I learned a lot.
Unfortunately now, I think the sleeves out shines the dress, well the bodice. I considered about replacing it, but decided it wasn't worth it, plus it made my daughter really nervous for me to be reworking her dress. She was quite upset until it was done. She loves the dress, and if I replaced the bodice she probably wouldn't love it at much, she LOVES the button. Snow White stories are now her favorite in her Princess Collection Book.
(She also likes stories about "the doggie"-- Beauty and the Beast)
Even though it is opposite I think she plays a good snow white even with her fair blond hair. Then again Marge Champion was the model for snow white and she definitely did not have hair as dark as a raven.
