DIY: Create Your Own Wednesday Addams’ Dress
For those enjoying a good DIY project, you can create your own Wednesday Addams' dress. Here's what you need:
- Three types of black fabric: tulle, organza, and a stretchy, non-transparent one
- 3 m of black polyester taffeta
- 9 m of smooth black nylon organza
- 4 black buttons
- 1 spool of 1000 m black thread
Refer to Elisabeth Moore's tutorial that guides you through the steps, which include sewing the top, adding buttons and buttonholes, cutting organza strips for frills, sewing ruffles to the edge of the top, and creating the skirt by cutting circle pieces of taffeta and organza before sewing them together. To emphasize the waistline, an organza belt is sewn into the skirt. Worry not about the pattern as there are free sewing patterns available for download with subscription.
