The costume craze continues-this time it is a Head Munchkin costume for Daughter.
It was probably a dress for a fancy dance of some kind (shudder). We can’t imagine wearing it for that purpose.
But, it had potential! The basic fit was right, the zipper worked, the corset was already installed and it was the desired color scheme.
First we picked off all that lacy trim and beading. As bad as it was to take out, I can’t imagine how hard it much be to sew it on. By hand.
We were looking for hot pink, lime green and polka dots. Most of this came from my Big Pile of Junk (all the handy bits and pieces none of us can bear to throw away). We bought the narrow ribbon and the buttons. The polka dots were created with fusible web on a cotton/poly solid scrap. Don’t look too close but the buttons are attached with hot glue. Plus she has on black leggings. Those will NOT be part of the costume at performance time. 🙂
Total cost: $14.
She will be waving Dorothy down the yellow brick road surrounded by all of her little munchkins (3-year old dancers) in June. I can’t wait!
