"Rear Window" Suit.

Photobucket
 
   If you follow my blog some time ago, then you know that I like to sew clothes from classic films.
  I always felt a weakness for beautiful clothes that appear in movies, so one day I decided that I could wear them too, you can find the suit in January here, here in February , March here.
   The last movie I chose was "Rear Window" a wonderful movie by Alfred Hitchcock, and the dress I chose to sew was this, the fabulous Grace Kelly ...

   I am aware that Grace Kelly is wearing a party dress fantastic in this scene, the dress has a tight body black V-neck front and back, and her dress has a white skirt with a skirt top organza embroidered with black beads. My version of this dress has some differences with the original, I want to wear this suit out for a walk or dine out and NOT a dress for a special occasion, so I chose to sew a shirt in black stretch fabric from a pattern Burda magazine.

   The shirt gave me a lot of trouble, but I think the problem is in the chosen fabric,  it's like sewing  chewing gum,  the fabric stretches all over and was a pain to sew and adjust, I opted to add a strip of 3 cm on the line neckline because it was indecent.
   The skirt is a simple circular skirt cut in a thin wool fabric, it's ivory color (I love it) and was very quick and easy sewing it,.... I knew that embroidery with beads was not an option for this skirt, so I painted the fabric with "clusters",  I did not use any pattern or drawing set for it, I went to paint in the skirt after I finish sewing it , as I was evolving with the drawing .... fabric paints and a bit of imagination was enough to make the skirt in the final product.

 If you are interested in a small tutorial on how to paint fabric, just say and I will prepare one soon.

   So when the suit was finished, I used this to go to get my husband to his work (it was his birthday), and after some photos, we had a romantic dinner and great fun.

     So I'm thinking of restarting this wonderful fun again .... and guess what!!!!  .... I have already chosen the next film ....
                  Have a wonderful week ...

  5. I love the things you make! You take something fabulous and exquisite from a movie and turn it into "regular" clothes- wearable items that really spruce up a wardrobe. Bravo, bravo on this one! I'm entranced by how you painted the fabric- I might just need a painted circle skirt, myself! Thank you for the inspiration, and for sharing.

  14. Beautiful! Very simple and elegant. I don't think that I would be brave enough to paint something once I had it sewn. What if I dropped paint in the wrong spot?

  26. WOW!!........por cierto...por que sera que todos mis comentarios en tu blog empiezan con esta expresion???
    Eres super super talentosa! nunca se me hubiera ocurrido pintarle esos detalles, supongo que la falda original tiene aplicaciones verdad?
    Me inspira tanto leer tu blog, y quisiera ponerme a coser tantas cosas como tu, solo que o no me doy el tiempo o siento que no me saldran las cosas bien.
    A veces quisiera pasar dos dias completos cosiendo, pero solo puedo hacerlo por las noches o los domingos, PERO me acabo de proponer/decidir que me dare mas tiempo, me levantare mas temprano , practicare y cosere mas y mas.........
    Y si me gustaria un tutorial de como hacer la pintura esa, gracias!
