Thus, some late-night sewing for a princess was in order;
When I first started learning to sew, I bought some lengths of pink, purple and white tulle, thinking that one day it might come in handy, having two girls (I pictured myself making some little tutus!).
I layered the tulle (pink on top, two layers of white and more pink underneath) to create a full skirt and then I just stiched the seam and put elastic in the waistband. I was going to shred some of the layers, like a fairy skirt, but decided to go for the classic princess look instead.
(Well, as classic as it can be, with rainbow sneakers underneath!)
The top of her 'dress' was a pale pink t-shirt to which I added puffy sleeves out of white tulle, but I haven't managed to take a photo of it yet.
The hat was princess style, with more tulle at the point and re-enforced elastic
Important for princesses who are so excited they won't stop running around;
Liv spent a lot of time in the bath last night pondering just how exactly a princess should wear her hair... before exclaiming that 'one long plait!' was the perfect princess hairstyle;
Liv was quite amazed, thinking I had turned her old princess dress into a longer princess dress. She didn't quite understand that it was a whole new outfit, because she kept saying 'But how did you make it this colour?'. A little bit of magic, I guess!
