Jenna wanted Ariel's pink dress for Halloween.
Not the turquoise mermaid suit, which was just as well, given the temperatures in these parts.
Pink and white fleece and white shiny thingy fabric. I hesitate to call it satin because it drapes poorly and is overly polyester and has glitter stuck on, besides.
Here she is with her sidekick, Flounder:
And here's a photo of her overskirt. If I'd actually looked at the little Disney figurine we have of Ariel, I would have noticed her overskirt was NOT a cheat-gathered thing like what I made. And I would have preferred the actual swag drape that it was, because this gathered thing was very bunchy at the waist and hard on my needles. That's beside the fact that I got the colors of the skirt and overskirt switched, too.
But Jenna loves it and, unfortunately, Kate loves it, too. Simply because it's pink. Grr. I should outlaw pink in our house, and that will be the end of fights.
Here is proof that even layers of fleece will not save us from hypothermia. It was freezing today, with some wicked wind. Brrrr.
Two down. And Emily's is also done -it just needs a few stitches put in by hand.
Now to start on the hooded cloaks.
