I know it's been a really long time since my last installment of this tutorial, but you can see them here, here, and here.
A while back, I found this beautiful tapestry tablecloth at Goodwill. I knew I wanted to use it for something, and when Frozen Fever came out it found its purpose.
I started with the vest from the doll, tissue paper, and a piece of paper.
I figured out the approximate shape of the vest and drew it on the paper.
Then I figured out what I wanted my measurements to be.
I drew the design to scale on the tissue paper and cut it out, thus creating my pattern piece. There are pins in it because my tissue ripped in the middle.
I pinned my pattern to the fabric and cut it out.
Then I turned my fabric inside out and pinned where I wanted the seams to be.
On the dress form:
All that was necessary was a simple straight stitch along the seams.
Anna's vest has blue piping aroung the edges, so I took the ribbon from my hair accessory...
... and pinned it around the edges.
Bonus picture of my dog's foot because she wouldn't move... ;)
Once again I just used a simple straight stitch.
The flower designs on the front were hand painted using acrylic paints.
For the design on the back, I went with a simplified version because I wanted my fabric to be the focal point instead of more flowers.
I started by pinning some pale cream ribbon to the back and sewing it on wherever I had pins.
Then I hot glued another flower underneath the "peak" of the ribbon.
Using glittery blue nail polish, I added some accents.
And that concludes the vest! Easy enough, right?
