My daughter absolutely loves the color pink!
So when I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween, she said she wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood after seeing some really cute costumes. Boy, was I surprised! But, she quickly changed her mind after I told her the story of Little Red Riding Hood. I was disappointed because I love the color Red and I thought the costume would be sooo cute!
So...we looked at more Halloween costumes and she said that she wanted to be a Princess, a Pink Princess. Now that sounds more like my girl. I thought maybe the pink phase wore off, but I was wrong.
Now this was a no sew costume, for the most part. I added some flowers and I hand stitched those on, but it wasn't necessary. And I suppose gluing the flowers would have been faster, but I added a small pearl to the center of each flower and quickly stitched it on.
I used 5 yards of light pink tulle and 5 yards of white tulle. I cut the tulle into 6 inch strips and then tied a knot around a "waffle" headband that I used for the bodice. The sleeves were also made of tulle. I just took two strips and stuck it through the tulle and wrapped it around the bodice and then tied the ends at each side (under her arms) so the sleeves are adjustable.
Easy enough and absolutely darling! Now all she needs is a crown and we are good to go!
