“Pimped”Firefly Sutures & Sandpaper

I’m really enjoying checking out the fabulous ways people have infused their own style into their Firefly Dresses.

So far we’ve been visited by Tina from Damsels & Dragons (you can find that blog post HERE) and Steph from Owl&I (you can find that blog post HERE) and today we’re off on a blog visit to check out Kerry from Sutures & Sandpaper’s “Pimped”Firefly and her blog posts talking you through making those fabulous buttons from her first Firefly!


Here’s a brief rundown on the changes Kerry made to the Firefly pattern to make this sweet number!

For my “pimped” firefly I made the bodice as per the pattern and then changed the skirt from the gathered skirt in the pattern to a circle style skirt using the Boo! Skater Skirt as a starting point. I then hemmed it using the hidden bias method which gave a bit of structure to the hemline and helped it sit nicely when worn.

For the full blog post (including lots more pictures!) visit HERE.


Kerry’s first Firefly (see <-) was as per the pattern, but not having the hot pink buttons she was searching for sent her off on an adventure to learn how make her own!
