I volunteered to help a friend with the Halloween costumes for her three kids this year. They are going as Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach. Mario and Luigi's costumes were a snap! But I had to make the ultimate Princess Peach dress.
I got a pattern since I wanted it to be a surprise and I know her daughter is size 2T.
I stayed up last night until 4:35 AM making the dress. I slaved over adding interfacing to the perfectly scalloped collar to make it stand up just so. And the pink swooshes on the hips. And the perfect puffed sleeves. I was so tired, but continued on.
This morning it was looking rather large. I tried it on my Evangeline (who is a 5T) and it fit perfectly. Cutting it down three sizes was impossible.
Seriously. Burn of the century.
