I found some of the fabric at walmart the striped one the cream with tan flowers and the white with blue flowers. Not were I usually shop for fabric but it was 2.50 and on clearance and a very light weight cotton so I think it will work well especially since this is only for four days did not want this to be terribly expensive. The rest came from my stash of fabric the plaid i used for little woman and I will be using it again using the same pattern I used in little woman. In fact all 8 dresses will be the same pattern in the exact same size as me and all my daughters pretty much wear the same size dress these days which will make this go faster. One of my daughters the youngest has actually passed me in height recently so this will not last long that we can do this.
If you want to see the dresses pattern all fancy for plays follow these links below. But for trek I will make them much more simple with less layers so my daughters and I do not over heat.
from Little woman
Amy's blue dress
Jo's red dress
Meg's blue dress
I also made a brown one for beth and two gray ones for beth but not sure I ever made a post on them and a gray black white one for jo but never posted about them.
|Beth's Gray dress with pink trim and Amy's blue dress with apron|
|Beth's Brown dress with 100 year old lace Amy's blue dress Jo's red dress|
|Amy's first dress with red trim and Beth's brown dress|
|Jo's dress black white gray with red flowers this was the actresses favorite dress of the play|
|Beth's dress with White trim Meg's Blue dress|
|The first dress all the sister's in little woman wore for act one all the same dress pattern just embellished differently to make them look different. Amy's red and gray dress Meg's blue dress Jo's red military dress and Beth's brown dress|
So this is a pattern I have made at least 7 times already i think actually 8 times and will make 8 more times I can pretty much make it in my sleep these days.
