Make that Snow Queen DebbieIt occured to me that having princesses for daughters (and kitten) must make me the queen! I got to dress the part today after picking up the "material" for my next sewing project.
I'm planning on making several simple princess dresses. They're mainly intended for Charla's birthday party, where all the girls get to dress up, but then she'll get to add them to her "wardrobe" of princess attire.
Well, instead of buying all the fabric by the yard at fabric stores, it occurred to me to look on craigslist for gowns and formals people may be trying to get rid of. For those of you who haven't discovered craigslist.com yet, you are missing out. It's on online yard sale where you can find just about anything, usually super cheap. There was certainly a selection! I contacted one girl selling a wedding gown for $25. She was also including a fur trimmed cloak it came with. Turns out her husband had gone to a storage unit auction and the dress/cloak were one of the things in the unit he won. They had no need for it, so I benefited!
