Midsummer Night’s Ball and Tulle Fairy Tale Skirt

Last night I went to the Midsummer Night’s Ball, hosted by Sam and Monica of Overattired.¬† I made myself a tulle skirt filled with flower petals that I am calling the fairy tale skirt. IMG_4895I originally intended the skirt to be worn with a mint green petticoat and top, so it was made with a green waistband matching sash. However, since I am busy sewing for Costume College I did not have time to make a mint green top so for the ball I decided to go with a cream coordinate, and wear the skirt over a H&M chiffon dress I already had in my closet. This is what the skirt looked like at home.IMG_4787The tulle and chiffon are from Fabric Wholesale Direct, and I wrote a step-by-step tutorial with pictures for their website. Tulle skirts are easy and fast!

My antlers are from Sweet Mildred, and are lovely both from the front and back.IMG_4916 IMG_4919The shoes are an eBay find from a few years ago. I’ve also worn them with a 20s tea outfit.

IMG_4915The belt is also from eBay, and the acorn necklace is from LOTV Designs.IMG_4921A silly pose!

IMG_4897At the ball I delivered a dress I made to Jean, editor of San Francisco/Science Fiction Magazine. I made this for myself years ago, prior to this blog, so I don’t have any construction photos to post. I am glad the dress has found a new home! It is a damask dress based on Italian Renaissance design, and trimmed with gold and white twist with gold beads. I also made the puffed-sleeve blouse worn underneath. IMG_4910
