Take Me Back with Made by Toya

We're so glad you're enjoying our new series:

Take Me Back Tuesday!

We love diving into the details of a look, so let's examine another creation.  This look is by Toya of Made by Toya from Season 18 Week 3: Celebrations Around the World.


 We can probably all agree that our jaws fell to the floor when we saw this look! 

There are 5 stunning pieces represented in this look.  Each is worthy of it's own attention, and all together...well, stunning!  There is a bomber jacket, sweatshirt and metallic dress on the older sister.  On the younger one we see a dress and those wings!  Let's break it down:


Bomber Jacket pattern: The Senpai Bomber Jacket is a perfect fit here.  It allows for all those fantastic details; welt pockets, contrast binding, and the zip front would be an easy change.  

Bomber Jacket fabric: Of course it would have to be this Majesty Velvet in blush fabric to get that stunning look!  And we even sourced the cute contrast black and white ribbing too.

Cropped Sweatshirt pattern:  The Chromium Cropped Hoodie is a no brainer here!  And you could create that cute curved front with a simple hem modification too.

Cropped Sweatshirt fabric: This Stretch Bamboo French Terry Dusty Rose would be beautiful!  Almost too gorgeous to use for a kid!

Lion head graphic: Toya painted this lovely lion head, but if you're like me and not that talented, you can search for MF08591A from Cricut Design Space.  And use this great quality black Everyday Iron On Vinyl.

Metallic Dress pattern: Quite a stunner, right?  This one could be easily created using the Odeline Dress for the main part of the dress (just substitute a zipper for the back buttons) and grab the collar from the Maybelle Dress.

Metallic Dress fabric: This is where the magic happens!  Kaufman Gilded Denim Shirting would be the perfect choice.


Dress pattern: The Merry Go Round Dress would be great here.  Again, you could swap out the buttons for a zipper in the back if you prefer that.  And the curved waistline could be modified pretty easily.  Of course you would cut out everything in the main fabric and tulle and layer them for that ethereal look!

Dress fabric: Toya upcycled a cotton/silk shirt for the underlay, but this gorgeous silk georgette fabric in pebble would do the trick nicely!  And the overlay would need some pink tulle.

Wings pattern: Now these are a little harder, but modifying the shape of the City Lights Cape pattern and following Toya's details in her post, it could be done beautifully!

Wings fabric: Layers and layers of white tulle as well as some of the dress fabric would make the best wings!

Alright, here it is all together:


Location & Photography: Toya took these photos on a blank white background and it's the perfect choice for letting these outfits do the talking.  The side lighting, shadows and face painting complete the look!
