Purse/Candy Bag fit for a princess. Matches I'mani's Halloween costume.

Sunday, October 11, 2009

I'mani's halloween princess costume is complete. I have given you upclose and total views. It is 7 inches too long, but she can use it for dress up. Amazing, the pattern was for a short skirt size 2. I did not lengthen the skirt, but did want a long skirt. Imagine if I had wanted the short skirt, fitted dress on the pattern! I also lengthened the sleeves. This is a simplicity, Disney pattern for Snow White and Cinderella. I plan to make her a matching trick or treat princess bag.

Spoke with I'mani today. She has been calling me weekly since I left DC. She goes to her mom and gets the phone. We chatter for about 1/2 hour. I really miss playing with her, but LOVE our chats on the phone. Some day I will be able to understand her!

Sleeves are on and finished!

Bodice and bird embroidery on the skirt front. The embroidery appears twice on the skirt front.

Many of you have heard I am making a princess costume for I'mani. Her 24 inch doll is getting one too because I needed to practice the embroideries on the same fabric before embroidering on her costume. I added a repeat on her costume to cover the full front. I t hink her costume will have a maderia applique hem, but that is to be determined with me working so much overtime.

I have both side by side, then the doll front skirt, then two of I'mani"s front skirt. The embroideries are from the Martha Pullen Embroidery Club.
