Up until this year, I was scared to make clothing...last year, I sort of dipped my toes in the water with the bloomers, but I didn't go fully in until I made my daughter and niece's Halloween costumes. They were butterfly fairies, inspired by Tinkerbell. Here's their costumes:
For my niece Abby's first birthday, I wanted to make her a lady bug dress, to go along with her Lady Bug themed birthday party. I searched everywhere for Red fabric with black polka dots, and I couldn't find any that reminded me of a lady bug, so I decided to applique black polka dots on to red fabric. Turned out much better than I could have imagined! Here's a picture of her wearing it: (photograph provided by Terri Beloit Photography)
Well, I'm diving head in - I'm listing dresses on the Etsy shop!
