I have made many a costume for my children over the years. Most recently I have made many a costume for my grandchildren. I never thought to post them on my blog, but I am re-thinking this. I need to go through many pictures (digital, hard copy, etc)...........and will post them at a later time. Thanks for visiting.
Sooooooooooo (sew)...........I love to create. Be it making beautiful children, painting art, gardening, affirming, etc. It is all there within me. And I embrace it. This is my latest endeavor. A project for my beautiful granddaughter. She requested that I make a costume for her school's International Fair presentation this week. Since her country is Switzerland, she wanted a Swiss costume. I found a pattern for her and inquired about the colors she wanted. Her answer was: sky blue dress with a black apron and grass green ribbon for the lacing. No problem!!!! So, here is the end result. I added a little sparkle here and there (per her acceptance). I am so looking forward to being there to watch her presentation .........which she also requested from me (be still my beating heart!). Photos of she herself donning the costume will follow.
