Flip creation for August "Ti(n)ny Snow white"

Addicted...
May I admit that I was hooked by this "Flip this pattern" series at Frances Suzanne. As I was sewing along since June, E&E Bubble shorts. Then 2 versions here and here for the O&S Roller Skate dress during last month.

This month, the Tinny dress pattern is a very challenge for me. Lots of option, thanks for talented An from Straight-grain who created this, but it not easy to flip the pattern that is so much flexible by itself. And this pattern required zipper installation (never did, checked!) and collar (never did as well, checked!).



Anyway, my decision is to learn how to install the zipper and finished the beautiful collar from this pattern. It turned out to be a right decision because the provided instructions are very clear and I have no (big) problem to do so.

And the result is... Tinny dress inspired by Snow white.

Ti(n)ny Snow white insisted to pair the dress with red converse



I made the bow collar by using peter pan collar pattern as a guiding, made the dress without sleeves and use the bias tape to finished instead and change the skirt to bubble skirt. That's it!

How I adjust a peter pan collar pattern to be a bow collar

I made it in size 3 and it perfectly fits my almost 4 years girl. (She quite small for her age)


I asked her to act as a "Princess Snow white" but got only these little monkey action shots. Well.. at least she can be herself in this outfit. The girl happy = Mommy happy :)

Love these apple buttons at the front, cute!

I'm not normally dress my girl up in costume outfit but not-so-spacial costumes which can wear every day are not easy to resist.

By the way, while I thought about how to flip the Tinny, I was realized that with all those peter pan collar, zipper at back and pleat skirt. This pattern can be use for making my girl's school uniform easily. But NO way!

  

Thank you for stopping by!

  9. I love the subtle princess feel to the dress. The colors are clearly snow white, but the dress is understated enough that she could wear it everyday. I think her styling with the converse is just adorable! And that bow hanging from the collar is genius. I'll have to use that idea :)
