When Yasmeen was born nearly 11 years ago, I couldn't wait until she was old enough to have some fun with dress up and costumes. I didn't know how to sew back then so my first attempts were OK but the real fun began when I started sewing. Yasmeen was 7 so it wasn't that long ago. I'll share some pics of the past 3 years and then I'm back to ruffling chiffon.
This was the year Yasmeen was 7, she was a spider by day (for school)..
and a supermodel/ ballerina by night..
When she was 8, I upcycled a "lovely" women's jumpsuit that was given to me by my dear sister Dru (she wore it for a costume some years before) and a teen-age Pebbles she became..
she had a BamBam with her but he was not a teen at all ; )
At 9 she became a teen-age hippy (yes, she is obsessed with the wonderful teen years) ready for a wild night out with friends (and lots of candy)..
we tied died little brother and gave him some war paint too...the baby had a tie died onsie on but that was about it and there are no pics! I'll be sure to get pics this year.
