The Costume Box: Dress-Up for Holiday and Every Day »
Type of item: Costume
Style: Cute, Whimsical
The material for the cloak is satin. For the crown I used pelmet vilene and covered it with gold lame and used felt for the jewels, ( our 2yr old would remove beads ) and the skirt is made from a sheer polyester.
What was your inspiration?
I needed a costume for the jubilee celebrations. Our local playgroup asked if they could be dressed in red white and blue or as a princess hence the colour scheme.
What are you most proud of?
My 2 year old grandaughter loved it and is still wearing the crown constantly.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The course is good fun and has a lot of great ideas. Velcro is a great fastener for dressing up clothes for small children.
