Fairy of the Earth
This outfit is 100% no-sew. I started with the brown sequin trim and pins. I wrapped it around for some sort of modesty (with moderate success) and stuck in a few pins. Next, I wove two shades of tiny ribbon around one arm and tied a bow on her wrist.
The chiffon trim came from the trim section at Joann Fabric. I purposely use a variety of browns (or whatever color I am doing) for my monochromatic outfits to give a feeling of depth. The chiffon was a little hard to pin, especially around her leg. I haven't sanded or blushed Yeru's body yet, so I used a little removable tape to hold a few of the leg wraps in place.
Yeru is wearing a Monique Gold wig called Tori. I pulled up a section and tied it off with long ribbon to complete her look.
