I hoped to join PR&P week #3 glitter challenge, but missed it. Momo loves anything with sparkles and I am pretty sure she would have loved anything I make, but I just did not have a concrete idea and time to experiment. This is a pretty busy time of the year for us, and we have had events non-stop since the end of January...Mardi Gras, Lunar New Year, Valentine, a birthday celebration...and then Rodeo is up next. I have been running around, planning, and making something every week, Honestly I am starting to feel burned out. But I really did not want to miss this challenge...I planed to make this dress last year but did not. If I don't push myself now, it was never going to get done.
But this means I had to make a change, and I decided not to add tulle. I just felt wired adding tulle layers underneath.
The dress bodice is from Secret Garden Dress pattern. I have used it here and here before, and knew Momo could wear it on and off without a need of a zipper thanks to the deep open back. That was important, so that she could wear this anytime on her own to play dress-up. The skirt is a simple gathered skirt.
this dress and it has been very useful since.
But I do have noticed Momo is spending less time playing dress-up these days. I wonder if her princess days will be over soon. I hear girls outgrows them around age 6 to 7. It always leaves me in mixed feelings when I notice she is growing!
Linking up to those fun parties.
