Gracefaerie designed Marzipan for 43 cm Planetdoll girls. The fact that I do not have any Planetdolls did not deter me from making the dress. I figured it was bound to fit one or another of my slim minis.
|Beginning the corset. Front and Side-Front pieces are attached. Back and Side-Back pieces await.|
|Bodice and lining pinned together before sewing. Iron-on interfacing has been attached to the wrong side of the main fabric.|
For the trims, I already had white lace and a ruffled white organza. I also had three floral trims in different colors. They were purchased with this project in mind, but before I had thought about what fabric I would use. I held each one next to the fabric and finally went with the pink-and-yellow flowers. I wish they all had been pink. I didn't really want to introduce another color. It makes the result a little more exuberant than I intended.
|Attaching lace to the bottom of the overskirt.|
|Overskirt with yoke attached. Yoke lining will be sewn down after the underskirt is attached.|
|Overskirt on the right; underskirt on the left.|
