Tinkerbell Dress Mark One

So, Kaylee will turn TWO YEARS OLD on July 16th.  It’s hard to believe.  We’ve decided to have a Tinkerbell themed birthday party for her because she loves Tink so much.  I thought it would be awfully cute for her to have a costume for her birthday, but the storebought ones just don’t look quite like what I want.  I’m all about re-purposing discarded clothes, so I figured I would give it a shot!

I do have two t-shirts that are a better color and that are in better shape, but I didn’t want to ruin either of them if it didn’t work out, so I took another of my old green shirts that had paint stains on it and turned it inside-out.  Personally, I can’t tell the difference from right-side and wrong-side of most fabrics, unless they have a print on them.

And so, after drafting a pattern and a few trials and errors, this is what I came up with (please ignore the red eyes):

Tinkerbell Dress part one

I am planning on taking pictures and making a tutorial for the next one-the “real” one- as I go.

I think that this would be adorable in any color, really.  Just leave the bottom hem straight and it’ll be a cute little sundress.

I’m also going to try to make her some fancy wings, though I doubt she’ll wear them.  She might.  I don’t know.

Oh, and some little slippers might be required as well!  Who knows?  I might get her some leggings that are the right color and crochet her a little ponchette to add to the dress to make the rest of the outfit from “The Lost Treasure”.  One step at a time, though, right?

See ya’ll soon, I hope.
