I am so so excited about today's post! This has been a big work in progress for me and I am thrilled with how it turned out. More importantly, Emilia loved it!
We celebrated Emilia's THIRD birthday this past weekend with a "Tinkerbell Party", at E's request. The only catch was that she wanted to be Rosetta, Tinkerbell's fairy friend, because she wears pink. My MIL found an awesome deal on a peachy colored fabric which matched our Rosetta doll's outfit perfectly, so I set out to create something fantastic.
Emilia loves tutus and all things twirly, so I really felt the stress of perfection...haha. Honestly, I just kind of made up the skirt as I went along...I looked at a couple tutorials for petal skirts and tutus, but ultimately, just kept playing with it until I liked it. It didn't pass the "Twirl Test", but E still loved it!
I also took a plain white tank and added a small fabric rosette embellishment. I didn't want anything too over-the-top and I think it turned out great!
She was also very particular about which character each family member was to dress up as...and here is our little family! I was Tinkerbell and Jason was Terrence- Tink's boy fairy friend. Such a good dad to get in on the fairy fun! (O:
I am excited to post all about her party details soon. Please stop back by! (O:
