A Happy Little Thing

I finally finished Ansley's Tinkerbell dress. All of the pieces except the sleeves have been cut out since November or December of last year, right before our trip to Disneyland. I had finished a dress for each day (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White) so Tinkerbell got pushed to the bottom. She's not exactly my favorite in the classic Peter Pan. I think her newer spin off series are probably better but we haven't seen them.

Anyway, this is the same dress with flutter sleeves from a different view (simplicity 0351a which also has another number but I don't know what it is). I got a little confused with the bias binding of the armholes but did something that worked but probably wasn't what the instructions intended. I will have to do some more research.

The skirt is a also a circle with five free handed petals. (inspired by the petals on this gorgeous dress by icandy). Ansley picked to have a raw edge on the circle skirt so it's just zigzagged instead of folded under twice. I also zigzagged the raw edge of the sleeves and around the petals (which don't have raw edges b/c they're actually two petals sewn together).

I didn't calculate where to place the petals, just arranged them so they seemed just about right. I don't know why I didn't realize it was going to be a flower when the circle skirt is spread out completely. Ansley likes to step in her dresses rather than putting them on over her head.

  2. Everything you make is darling. And the newer movies are better. Now Tinkerbell is spunky and determined rather than ornery and conniving as she was in the original movie.
