Type of item: Costume
Style: Romantic, Cute, Holiday
Crushed taffeta, glittery satin and leftover gold trim.
What was your inspiration?
After seeing the movie "Brave" my granddaughter, Abby, wanted to dress up as Princess Merida for Halloween. She loves for me to sew for her and appreciates what I make for her.
What are you most proud of?
The sleeves that she can remove when it gets hot. That it is a one of a kind and that it looks so good on Abby.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Stick with it and start early. I had a number of ideas of how to alter the pattern and some worked, some didn't and I did some ripping out and starting over again. Don't get discouraged.
