After I finished Jadyn's blue dress she prompting changed her mind about being Alice and declared it to be her Cinderella costume. I figured it would be easier to make a few changes to the dress then to sew the Alice pinafore, so I was perfectly happy to let her switch! i hadn't hemmed it yet either, so it was still long enough to work as for a Cinderella costume. plus, now I wouldn't have to be mean about denying her a kitten. I changed the lining on the sleeves and took the skirt off to add the hip flounces and it became a cute little Cinderella costume! I was pretty burned out after sewing the two costumes, so it was another week or so before I got around to glittzing her dress up with rhinestones, but I cam so glad I did! She loved having sparkles all over it. I will say that next year, I won't start nearly so early making costumes. At least not when my kids can see it! They had such a hard time waiting until Halloween to wear them.
