For the 'Once Upon a Thread' event over at no big dill I decided to take inspiration away from the old Grimm's Brother tale 'The Bremen Town Musicians'. I chose this story because my grandfather used to live in a little town near Bremen and would always read the story to me and my brothers at Christmas time. I wanted to use Christmas colors because whenever I think of it I think of Christmas time, cocoa and gingerbread men. Happy days!
I made a peasant dress using a pattern from Little Lizard King out of this BEAUTIFUL red and white damask that I just HAD TO HAVE and a contrasting teal to make it modern. I used matching red stitching to add some detail. I made the lace leggings to add a hint of the old to go with the modernness of the color combination. I didn't realize as I was sewing it how much I would ADORE the leggings! They are flipping fantastic! I wish I was six so i could wear them. LOVE!
