Tuesday Daughter was home sick from school. Not REALLY sick. But too sick to go and cough all over everyone.
By afternoon she needed something to do.
So, we started to lay out a “Cinderellas.”
The name comes from my neice, who loves to play dress up. In fact, she wears dress-up clothes everywhere. Some of them are getting rather worn and she needs some new ones.
So, we assembled an idea pile: lime green t-shirt, satin nightshirt from thrift store, second-hand western wear shirt with the snaps torn off one sleeve, pink and purple scraps and some netting of uncertain origin. The buttons and eyelet were added to the pile later, but both were items on hand. In fact, the eyelet was from my mother (her Mahgah) from probably 30 years ago.
I should have taken more pictures in process, but I didn’t. Since this is “starting” Cinderellas I will try to do better next time. But…
Here is the final product.
I was going for simple and sturdy. And princess.
Niece will be able to put it on and take it off herself. It is washable. She can wear it everywhere.
I really do mean everywhere. Yep, that’s her on her way in from the corrals at my parents’ house in one of her old Cinderellas.
