So there is someone around here about to turn 40, and this someone loves themed parties.
Hmmmm Who could it be?
While you are guessing, I will show you what I made for Falafel (who incidentally is not turning 40, yet)
This was a very quick way to give my girl an excuse to twirl.
And levitate. (?)
Not that she really needs an excuse to do any of those things. I don’t think the child ever walks. Ever.
This was made with some cotton fabric I had, along with extra wide elastic and a cute little poodle patch that we found at Joanns.
Since it is just for one day (and probably a few play dress-up days) I didn’t even finish the hem. How’s that for lazy sewing?
I also didn’t measure (which I probably should have). Dana of MADE has a great tutorial along with equations she uses.
I wasn’t feeling mathy.
So I threw this one together. It’s not perfect. But it will work.
She is wearing a full slip/crinoline that my sister and I used to wear (we’re talkin’ 1980′s here!) to give it some fullness.
It makes us both happy to bring a little of the past into the future!
