dress 3 of 7: dalek dress

torcher parade tomorrow night and we're doing a dr who theme so a philosoc friend and i are at the sewing machine and glue-gunning dresses into awesomeness!

we added a strip of black fabric to the bottom, a hoola hoop to that, and painted ball-pit-balls all over : )
although i should warn that sewing and using a glue gun when in a rush is deadly on the fingers!


  1. Hey, nice to meet you! I found your blog via a Dalek-dress search!! Your dalek dress is brilliant! How did you add the hoop and black material? I am trying to make one this week but ended up with the wrong coloured baubles! Did you cut the ball-pit balls in half?

  2. Hello! It's very nice to meet you too : )

    well, i had to sew the hoops into the hem of the skirt by hand (just fold around the hoop and stitch) and i chopped the balls in half, painted them with glossy black paint and glued them on with a glue gun. hope that's useful- good luck!!!
