So Cute!!

This pattern is wonderful! I found I really had to follow the instructions really carefully but sooo worth it. My DIL had given me a bridesmaid dress to make something with so I did. The fabric was a bit slippery but came out OK I think :-)

Beautifully written pattern, very methodical

A really super pattern. I haven't followed many patterns, just the odd clothing one, and this one was written so personably and the process of making so precisely documented. I particularly liked the parts advising to step back and admire the progress! I could have used one of two extra photos of the process as I got a little confused once or twice, but this is likely my error!
I chose a really daft fabric - couldn't pin it as it showed every single hole. And a metallic thread which frayed and jammed my machine if I pressed the machine foot fractionally too far to make the needle go more than about 2 stitches per second! My advice is stick to lovely cotton fabric and thread!
Even if you are quite a novice sewer, it's possible to make these wings if you take it slow!

Italian-blue dragon wings

Dear Twig & Tale
I just finished sewing my first dragon wings and they came out really well (also considering that I am no expert). Just a few notes that may of aid to future costumers:
1. I could not find the interfacing brands you mentioned in Italy. I could have ordered them via Amazon, but they were way too expensive. So I went to a very good supply store (I live in Rome and in the city centre there are supply stores for experienced tailors which also sell for the broad public) and I asked for a very stiff interfacing. Overall I think this was a mistake as the interfacing turned out a bit too stiff in turning out the wings. I think what is referred here as a medium stiffness interfacing would have been better. The wings have turned out fine anyway, and they do stand nice and straight (see photo), but turning them was hell and I had to ask my partner for stronger hands. So possibly European medium stiffness interfacing is fine if you go to a real tailoring shop.
2. It is very hard to find patchwork-like fabric in Italy (quilting is not very common around here). The only shop that I know of that sells quilting fabric in Rome is very expensive, so I just went to a really nice regular fabric shop. I found some nice turquoise thick cotton for the wings, but couldn't find any cotton pattern that would give the idea of a dragon for the inserts. So I went for a posh non cotton fabric. Which was really really nice as it looked as having little dragon scales and even if it was expensive I only had to buy very little. The downside was that the fabric tended to fray (I hope this is the right term, meaning that it needed sewing the ends for little threads not to come out). So when cutting the inserts I cut an extra sawing allowance which I tucked in when sewing the inserts (sorry, I'm no expert and this seemed like a good solution). Possibly you would have other suggestions for such cases? In some countries it is actually hard to find a lot of cotton patterns that may be more easily accessible in countries were quilting shops are available.
I hope these comments help and I also wish to stress that my three year old was very happy of his new wings, the entire family was very very impressed with them and we had a chance to make them fly in a walk we took in the countryside just yesterday to celebrate Carnevale (which is quite a big thing for kids in my country).So I really want to thank you for this great pattern which I truly enjoyed sewing (I also sewed two leaves from the leaf pattern and you are helping me to turn into a more confident self-taught tailor-mom).
Wishing you a very very happy Mardi-Gras from Rome in these very hard times!
