Venus

Princess version

Sailor Moon

Because Angelica wanted a Venus to go with her Serenity. :)

We made this dress in one night, and it was quite a challenge! The fabric we found was really slippery, so it was very difficult to cut out and, in fact, gave me blisters. The over skirt is my favourite part of the whole outfit, even if it's not even close to technically correct. I think it looks better over the fabric I chose for the dress than a plain chiffon would have.

I also found out the hard way that you should always pay attention to the pattern's instructions when it comes to fabric choice... "for stretchy fabrics ONLY" does **not** mean you can use non-stretch materials, at least not without a lot of tweaking. Oops?

The shoes were the most annoying part of the whole thing. I finally (after about three months) found the *perfect* pair on Ebay. Until then, every pair of yellow shoes I found was a pair of sandals with the toe open, which is not what I wanted.

Despite the challenges, I really love how this outfit came together.
