This weeks challenge was to refash something using Gingham pattern. I was very excited for this challenge because I love this pattern! I love this classic pattern, it reminds me of the 1950's, picnics and most importantly this image from Invashion of the Body Snatchers..
Everytime I watch this movie I think to myself 'I love this dress! I should make one!' Now thanks to this challenge I had the opportunity (and motivation) to make something similar!
Made my own bias tape because apparently JoAnns does not sell red gingham bias tape...which I think is very silly and HIGHLY inconvenient!
Pinned and sewed my newly made bias tape and scrap of material to the top.
Pinned and sewed my top to my new bottom.
Added hook and eyes to my tulle skirt....
