10th April 2012: WIP shot Just posting the image I did have before as progress here rather than in the main gallery.
So, this costume is really basic, the top drafted from a T-shirt I own with similar arm cuffs and the skirt a simple 3/4 circle both made from cotton jersey. The underskirt/tent is a 3/4 circle made from white cotton muslin and hemmed with a scallop stitch, cut down to give a neat edge. The collar facing and cuffs are both basic white cotton, invisibly stitched onto the main garment.
The bow is made from the same fabric as the dress, with a craft foam insert to give it the bold shape and attached onto a hair tie for ease.
Really simple costume, but one I really love wearing and really comfortable even after a full day.
