Halloween Princess - 2015 - Saturday Snapshots

Back in early September I posted a photo of the fabric and trim I planned to use to create a princess costume for my 4-year-old granddaughter. ("Princess Bling" - HERE) It had been a long time since I'd sewn with fancy, slippery fabric, so I wasn't sure how challenging the project would be. I went slowly and did a lot of basting! During the process, an unexpected surprise surfaced. I found an old rhinestone tiara from my elementary school days, stashed inside a falling-apart scrapbook. I cleaned it up and added it as a razzle-dazzle topper. 

My creation is complete, just in time for trick-or-treating, and here's the finished product. It was fun to make, and I'm pleased with the way it turned out. More important, my granddaughter was delighted! After Halloween, I imagine Corrina will use the costume for dress-up. I hope she has a lot of fun with it!

By the way, she'll be wearing sparkly shoes on Halloween 
instead of black socks!

  1. It's beautiful! Well done! And what a fabulous thing you've created, and I am talking about that most beautiful smile:)

  2. You did such a great job of it! No wonder she looks so delighted.

  3. Thank you, Jacquie and Louise. I had a lot of fun creating this, especially when my granddaughter was so delighted with the result.

  4. Great Job, Sandra! Hope it is warm enough that she doesn't have to wear her winter coat over the top. Too pretty to cover up. Looks like it will coat weather here tonight!

  5. What an amazing costume, and your granddaughter looks adorable! Thanks for sharing and's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  6. You did an awesome job! It's beautiful, just like your granddaughter!

  7. With all the rain we're having, I should have made a Little Mermaid costume instead! Usually, we have gentle rain in the Pacific Northwest, but today there's a downpour.

  8. What a beautiful little princess. You've done a great job.

  9. What a delightful dress. I would have loved it at that age. Shoot! I love it now! Perfect color!

  10. Oh my goodness! What a labor of love and what a beautiful little grin! Bet she was the belle of the trick or treater crowd!

  11. How pretty!! You did a fabulous job and she looks adorable.

  12. The opening and the teaser didn't captivate me much but the synopsis did. I'll need to read Jane Austen’s classic first but then I'll contemplate reading this one next. Thank you for sharing! :)
