Only Slightly Super Mum

14 Oct

I should make a tag for that title! 🙂

I made a Princess Leia dress for DD (a.k.a. Miss Seven) out of an old bedsheet. Yay me!

DD didn’t believe I could do it. She looked highly sceptical as I spread out the sheet, doubled it, and drew the pattern freehand.

Far less scepticism when I produced a long white dress with tucks, long flowing sleeves, and a sparkly pink belt. (For the record, I didn’t have time to make a silver belt with sparkles to be authentic). Our friend gave us a light saber which DD flourished with a lot of skill. (No blasters in our house, and I couldn’t find the water pistol.)

DD’s hair is long so I made her cinnamon bun rolls with a centre part and she definitely looked like a junior Princess – Princess Leia, that is.

Makes a nice change from the Pink Princess for Little Girls stuff that is sold in shops. Cost next to nothing apart from using good quality sewing thread.

    That would have been the coolest dress up!
