This was actually an unintentional birthday present – by which I mean it happened completely by accident. We’d already bought my niece some clothes for her 3rd birthday, and then Mr P was going out and left me home alone for an afternoon with nothing to do on the day before her birthday.
And what little girl doesn’t need a cape I ask you?
It’s made out of white cotton velvet and actually nicely used up the last of it, which made me happy – I love it when I get to stash bust! The red gathered lace was also stash and I thought set it off nicely – the neck tie is done from some silver/white cord that I found in my sewing box.
The skirt was made from a simple rectangular tube with a fully elasticated waistband – nice and easy to pull on and off herself. The cape is a ¾ circle, neither of them are lined – as I said, these were dressing up clothes and made super quickly.
This is why I totally shouldn’t be left alone with fabric and a sewing machine!
