Doesn't she look lovely wearing a clown skirt! It's actually the skirt to go over the top of a clown costume, this is what girl clowns are meant to do, you see! At least she is finally wearing something I made her, she seems to think it's her new dancing skirt - fine!
And no - there is no way that I will ever be able to get her to model it for you all.
I wanted to make the prettiest clown costume ever, except nobody got it! Almost everyone asked if she was a princess! GOOD GRIEF! But I suppose the matching big bows in her hair, strands of beads and cute little shoes, maybe a bit too pretty for a clown.
Can you see that it's a clown costume? I was quite gutted considering it took me and Oma a day to make! To add insult to injury, I made it especially for a circus day at Mainly Music, but she got chicken pox and couldn't go, thank goodness it was Halloween the next Friday, and with a lot of coercing she wore it - briefly!
Anyway, I spent last night cutting out my first ever pattern - OMG - YUCK!
And funnily enough it's a princess costume! My daughter is going to Disney On Ice next weekend with her grandparents, and I thought it was finally the perfect excuse to make her a princess dress. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing. It also requires a zip! The satin has already been a nightmare to cut. So wish me luck...pleeease, and if you don't hear from me in a while you know why.
PS she might not even wear it to the show....oh my...
