August Pinterest Challenge updated 25 motif challenge


Hi,

As you know Suzanne and I have been doing a challenge,  if we see something on Pinterest we would like to try,  then we try and make it.    Well August proved to be a challenge,  I fell in love with these tatted dresses,   Its from Tiny Flowers, there was no pattern that I could find,  so I worked this dress out from the picture.  I had a couple of trials No 20 thread was too fine and it worked out so small so I tried a thicker thread and here is it.
 I made the coat hanger for the dress,  not the best coat hanger in the world but its OK.   I used size no 10 thread in white.  I must say it felt like tatting with string,  No 10 is thick thread and by the picture she had used a thicker thread,  the bodice is block tatting and then the skirt is rings and chains.  I then sewed a piece of netting under the skirt which helped bring the skirt out.  I made a tiny bow and sewed it on the dress.
 If anyone would like my version of the dress I have now put it on my pattern blog Link   It may not be exactly as Tiny Flowers pattern,  but I think its  near enough.
It proved a challenge so I hope you like it,   now I feel like making a few more, so watch this space.
If you would like to pop over to Suzanne's blog and see what she has done link to her blog
                                      Hugs
                                  Margaret
Ps  the size from the top to the bottom of the skirt is 2 inches, sorry I forgot to add it in the post

  2. Oh wow it's gorgeous Margaret! Well done on the pattern and also for sticking with it. It wouldn't so much fun if it was too easy. The little coat hanger works. The ones I have would be too small I think. I'll send you the measurement . Well that brings us to September, time does fly! Good luck for the next challenge. Xx

  4. That is adorable! Wouldn't it look cute in a doll house or similar miniature setting?

  5. It's adorable. I like this little hanger, I noticed it right away! Wouldn't this be lovely as a memento present for a baby girl? That size 10 is huge like you said but it sure feels like you get results quick. I always find it hard to go back to small thread after.
