You would think she would look happier having the costume she asked for finished wouldn't you?
you did a great job
very cool - love the fabric!
oh cute, that glittery fabric was all on sale at 50% off a couple weeks ago, and I was wondering how it would look all done up. Was it hard to work with?
This is actually my 3rd year of working with the glittery fabric. In all honesty it is mildly difficult to work with, but not near as difficult as I find lame` (is that how it's spelled?) to be.... in fact having the right sides together is almost sticky (versus slick) when you try to turn so you need to be patient turning if have to do that
My first 2 attempts with the fabric looked like this:
And the year before:
aww I love the first one- or maybe it's just the cute smiling little one look on her face The younger they are, they seem to appreciate everything more, at least that's the way it is here.
Did you use patterns or wing it on your own? I bet DS would love a wizard- or magician costume.
I used patterns. The pink witch and the blue wizard costume are from the same package. Pattern 3617
And the purple princess is from a no sew pattern that i altered so i could sew it (I just didn't think glue would hold up to a night of FL humidity for trick or treating )
I do agree she looks happier in the third picture, but I think she was just trying to be difficult in the others
what a lucky girl to have a mommy make her special costumes! she does love to sparkle!
She looks really pleased with the costume, but a little *shy* being in the picture. Little ones are a lot easier to get to act natural when you pull out the camera for sure.
You did a great job! I need to head downstairs and help Robin finish hers soon.
