what an interesting combination.... golden, pink & princess for my 20 year old's golden birthday & mermaid/pirate for my 4 year old. it was fun though. i found an awesome tutorial on mermaid skirts for the little girls @ ikatbag's blog http://www.ikatbag.com/2012/03/listen-to-children-mermaid-tale-er-tail.html. e was SO happy and excited to have a mermaid tail!!!!! she had been wanting to wear it swimming after i got it finished and was always sad when i said not til after your party. so guess who wore it in the water a few times that sunday? it didnt last too long, think it was a bit too hard to swim. they were cool cause they can be long for play and then pulled up for easier walking/play. then the big girls skirts were fun as well. i remember why i dont work with tulle a lot. but they loved them. little a made all the girl's tops and had some nice burnt fingers for her troubles. all the sequins (that are hard to see)
all my beautiful mermaids!
i did make pirate eye patches for the boys, but ran out of time to make the hats, so i ordered those from oriental trading. big a really had fun with his exp while he was grilling supper (steaks!!!) but said that he couldnt have the eye patch down cause it messed with his balance too much. and t didnt get to dress up cause what was i going to make for a 1 year old that would allow her to walk in her sometimes drunk like fashion? maybe next time.
