One down, one to go!

It's finished! Well, the first one at least. And she LOVES it! She won't take it off.

Notice the little silver trim around the neckline. Just a little something to tie in the silver from the peplum belt. The directions actually wanted me to glue that on! After all the headache of putting the rest of it together, there was no way I was settling for glue on my beautiful princess dress. I hand sewed it, and made sure the stitches were hidden between the fabric and the lining. She decided against the pointy hat, so I may even add some on the sleeves, too.
 Simplicity 2569
Just being silly :)
 And extra silly. But, that's my girl!
The silver lame was surprisingly easy to work with. And wouldn't you know that the first project I've ever had to stitch-in-the-ditch would be a little girl's Halloween costume? Just goes to show that you can learn something (or LOTS of things!) from any project. Any of you attempting costumes this year?


  1. Cute costume for a very cute little girl. Glad she liked it. Can't wait to see the next one....

  2. I have a quick question for you - I'm making D with the same pattern, but body measurements seem off. My daughter typically wears a size 4 (regular clothing), but based on her waist size, this would have her at a 7! Did you find any issues with this?

  3. Yes, Beth... My daughter is a size 3T in regular clothes and surprisingly, the measurements have her in a size 3 for this pattern and it fits. I made another Simplicity in a 3 this summer and there's no way she'll fit in it until next year - it's enormous! I figured, if it was big she could wear an extra layer underneath for warmth on Trick-or-Treat night. I'm making D for the little one, who measures at a size 1/2, but I'm not convinced yet.

  4. What a lovely little girl's dress- I'm even more thrilled that it doesn't look like a character if you know what I mean. It's so hard to get kid's stuff that's inventive and interesting- lucky she has a sewing mommy! Great job on the sewing, I'll have fun looking around your blog.
