This is what I spent 10+ hours making today. It is for a beautiful teenager who is in a play this weekend. The pattern was a one piece jumpsuit but they wanted it 2 pieces so I altered the pattern. They wanted the ruffles so I added those too. It wasn’t a hard costume to make but I didn’t figure on it taking as long as it did to put all those ruffles on! I’m soooo glad it is finished. I do still have to put elastic in the bottoms, but I’m plumb out of elastic so I will have to get some tomorrow:-) The girl I’m making this for has the most gorgeous blue eyes, she is going to be so cute in this! I think it turned out rather well if I do say so myself!! I would have liked to make the ruffles on the pants a little fuller but this was all I could do with the amount of fabric.
