So, what do you do when you are going through sewing withdrawal because you haven't really sewn much in over a year and your awesome daughter asks you to sew her a costume? Well, you cave in--of course!

So, with great apprehension we bought all the supplies to make a cape AND dress. I knew I'd have to add some design details for the costume as well, but I wasn't afraid of that. I was more concerned with making the dress.
To make a long story short, it all turned out. It all ended up fitting her perfectly. Well, besides it being a little too long. She just has to wear boots with a heel.
