Poodle Skirt Fun

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 run.

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.

It happens.

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!

  2. Oh my heck. This is just too cute. These pictures look fantastic! I remember going on a daddy daughter date with my dad for school or something and the theme was the 50’s and I had to wear a poodle skirt. I felt like the coolest girl in the world. Haha Can’t wait to see what else you have up your sleeve for this lovely blog!
