As you know Sisi happens to be the self proclaimed biggest fan of Spider-man. Though she doesn’t want to watch the new movie, because it’s not Tobey. Who she believes is the best man for the part!
It’s hard to find Spider-man things with a girly flair without spending tons of money on something you’d want to look the way I wanted this to look. You can get a basic spider-man dress, or a women’s one over on Etsy… but I wanted something more specific. I had my own plot in mind and just went from there. No patterns, just go from what I wanted and pray it works!
Of course this was difficult to make without Sisi home, as I started this last week when she was over at the ex-husbands place and had to wait to finish for when I had her for correct sizing purposes. Which thank goodness I did! Because I had a few things that REALLY needed my help!
I kind of went for the peasant dress type look, at least with the basic top, but I was originally going to ruffle around the shoulder straps… but I ended up needing to shorten them a fair bit, so I am glad I decided against the ruffled idea.
I’ve done a more basic two-tiered dress like this before, with sleeves and without the rise to the middle of the first skirt layer. But I wanted to be able to see more of the second skirt.
Originally, the first skirt was supposed to be the same fabric as the bodice. But it’s a hard to find fabric, and.. wouldn’t you know. I cut two of the same piece instead of two pieces that could be put together to form the swagged top skirt. D: I was so sad! I am considering making her a headband with the messed up original skirt pieces though. That shouldn’t be too hard in theory.
I would like to take a moment to thank the fine ladies at the local Jo-Ann’s to helped me decide which of my two new spider-man fabrics to use for the top skirt. Since we couldn’t locate the original fabric at all. I think this looks cute together and I can’t wait to show you girls!
I ended up not liking the plainness of the bodice, so I decided to make and add a bow! Sis is so happy with it that she decided she just had to wear it right away. <3
I used a total of four Spider-man fabrics for the dress, as well as the light blue to add some difference, that still went together but wasn’t just busy fabric all over the place.
Thanks for looking!
