Beautiful job! The setting looks like the castle garden a bit also (just need those little ducklings, LOL). May I ask how you dealt with the skirt panels? The movie makes it look like they're wider as you get to the bottom of the skirt and are pleated with the darker green stripes. Are they apart of the skirt or separate? Did you paint the design on? THank you for your time.
Thank you so much! The skirt is all one piece- so I did it all with pleats, and they do get wider towards the bottom of the skirt! All of the panels are trapezoids (including the darker green stripes, which are just bigger trapezoids folded to be under the lighter green panels). So as you can imagine, there is so much more fabric in this skirt than you can see. Overall it's 4.5 pounds XD
I used cotton of varying colors and heat 'n' bond to put the designs on the skirt. I keep getting questions on how this process works so I might make a tutorial if you're interested, and I'll also be posting the stencil I created for this soon
Wow, it definitely looks amazing! For the full effect, I imagine you can't shortchange using less fabric --four and a half pounds though ... I think yours is the first I've seen with appliqué ... It seems most people are painting or embroidering the designs. I like how sharp and crisp it looks so I'll definitely look into that (and your tutorial would be great to see)! Thank you for answering my questions!
