Guess who finished the princess devil costume for her favorite 6 and one half year old! Oh yeah, baby–I managed to recreate a version of the sketch Miss Zoe made for me in Peets the other weekend. I needed to make a dress with pointy bottoms and sleeves and couldn’t find a costume pattern that met my needs. I did find McCalls #4620 which is a witch costume. That’s not at all devilly, but had potential. I altered the pattern to make points at the bottom of the princess panels. I used organza for the godets, and only made the top parts of those panels opaque to give it some kicky sheerness, but not enough peekaboo to excite the wackos out there. (The things ya gotta worry about.)
Okay, here’s my version! It’s all red and devilly, but still very princess-like. It has the requisite pointy sleeves and bottom bits. I hope it fits, I made it smaller than my usual attempts since I always make things too big for Miss Z. I mean, she’s a growing girl but I don’t think there’ll be a big growth spurt between now and the 31st. Now to collect my cut of the fun size Snickers as payment.
