Dress-up Clothes for a Fashionista!

This little fashionista's mom is my friend. She asked me to make a set of dress-up clothes for her daughter to help Santa out this year.
She wanted a "rocker" dress and belt,

another "rocker" dress, or long skirt sans the belt,


fur scarf,

Grecian goddess dress,

a princess dress with the addition of the skirt,

a ballerina costume,

a wedding gown and veil.

I got a little carried away with the wedding dress, but it sure was fun!! I'll deliver this in the morning while little fashionista is at school.
I bought a plastic tub and painted her name on the top and copies of the outfits around the sides. My camera battery died just as I finished taking the pictures of the clothes, so I can't get one of it.
Now, it's on to blankets for my grandson.
And, finally decorating that monstrosity of a tree that I put up the other day. I did get the lights on it and a few decorations. But, my front door still has a turkey wreath!!! Shame on me!!!

oh my i have 3 girls that would die for that type of dress up box.. i went through ours the other day and it is very sad indeed...not sure when they will grow out of wanting to dress up, lets hope not for a while.
thanks for visiting my blog, you are so sweet.

Those are wonderful dress-up clothes. What a good time that little girl will have in front of a mirror. You will make her Christmas one to remember! She'll be telling her children about this one day.l

This will be one happy little girl. I'll bet the wedding dress will be her favorite.

You're a good friend! She is going to love the dresses. My little one had the same purple fabric as the first dress in her dress up too. We made a halter dress.

I have tons to decorate too. You're not the only one. I have lots of gifts to make and buy...not enough time.

I gotta give you a hug Julia. No matter what I post you always leave me a comment. Thank you! And you're usually the only one.

Have fun sewing the blankets.

WOWZERS! I will not show this post to my little girls. They would be VERY jealous! Lucky little girl for sure. Looks like a lot of fun!

P.S. I will try and have the jeans tute up on Monday. Everything takes longer than it used to ;)
