The costumes have arrived at the raviolis houses so I can now post a few pictures of what I sent. I should be receiving photos of them in those items around Halloween and will add those later. To recap, about 3 weeks ago I received a call from my 5-cheese ravioli in NY. She called to "put in her order"...her words...for a Strawberry Shortcake costume. I know when I've been given marching orders for a costume, so off to the fabric store I went. Since it is cold in upstate NY during Halloween, I had to ensure that she would be warm as she went from house to house with her family.
Couldn't find wide green and white tights so I made the fabric by sewing green and white strips of fabric and then cut and sewed the pants for her to wear under the strawberry shortcake dress. Top it off with a strawberry type hat and you have Miss Strawberry Shortcake. Yes,Kit Kat, I added the sparkles to the strawberry on your shirt as you asked. It is such a bright and cheerful costume, I hope she enjoys it.
Now, never one to pass by really cool fabric when I see it. I fell in love with this hologram fabric at the same fabric store. I'm thinking, wouldn't this make the coolest Ghost Princess dress. So after I constructed Shortcake, I went and made this ghost princess outfit. I love it, right down to the black netting with holagram ghosts and a silver veil to wear.
