'Starry Night' Doctor Who Dress by mushroom2020 'Starry Night' Doctor Who Dress by mushroom2020
It's finaly finished!!! I will never attempt to hand sew 100's of beads onto a dress ever again :L This is truly a one off, people!

Because my favourite episode of Doctor Who was probably the one with Vincent Van Gogh in it, I tried to emulate his painting 'Starry Night' with metallic and blue threads and beads. I also appliqued a TARDIS in blue silk on there for good measure.

Black cotton fitted bodice, with navy blue silk underskirt and black chiffon overlay. The bodice is fully lined with the same navy silk as the underskirt and TARDIS applique.

This dress has been sold, sorry. But maybe check out my etsy? There are other dresses and stuff on there -----> www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SophieMay…


Oh! and it's also on my tumblr:headlessandrunning.tumblr.com/…

I realize it's titled to Doctor Who, but I can't help but think of Frozen when I see those swirls that are reminiscent of Elsa's icy powers.

I just have to say, I'm not very girly. I'm not very femmy. The last time I wore a dress was a good 12 years back. However, seeing this, I WANNA WEAR IT O___O

Also, LOVE the fact that it's Whovian lady attire :heart:

Then the fact that you did this all yourself AND SEWED ON ALL THOSE BEADS?! Holy Gallifrey... ~*gives you a medal and a tropy and a plate of TARDIS-shaped cookies*~

Lovely, lovely job with this dress. ~*goes off to meander through your gallery*~

I just went to ebay to check it out ... shame it's a small, I would have considered buying it for my daughter, but she is a medium. :(

Aw i'm sorry about that! :/ Have you checked it against the measurements? I'm sure you already have, I only say that because I picked 'small' just out of guesswork... It may not be the same size as an actual 'small' if that makes any sense. The actual cm measurements are the accurate part and they may just fit your daughter :) 
And thank you so much for the lovely compliments! x
