Wedding dress with lots of lace, another long dress in a solid color. sewing machine, thread, scissors, measuring tape, dress pattern. It's a good idea to choose a sewing pattern with several smaller pieces as opposed to just a few large ones. It will be easier to arrange them on the fabric that you get from the article of clothing that is used. I have found that using a dress form to arrange the sections comes in handy but you don't need one to do this project. It does help me to visualize the finished product better.
