Costume update

Madison's Fairy dress getting close to finished. still needs lots of work!!! 
 Another view-this time with the light behind it.
 Natalie's top DONE!!!  :)
Told you I wasn't a professional!!  :D    Just doing the almost best that I can-I am finding out that I really, really prefer my tatting now!!!  :)

Madison's costume(Fairy)

This is Madison's Fairy costume in progress.  It's just an idea of how it will somewhat look when finished(hopefully!!).  :)
 This next picture is hopefully to show the iridescence, shimmery, and glittery materials closer.  
Can't wait to be done with both!!  The girls are coming this weekend for fittings and hopefully to take them home, but I sure can't promise that today!!!  :)

Working on Natalie's Princess costume

Here is the Princess costume I have been working on for our oldest granddaughter.
This week I started sewing on Wednesday and have this much done already.  
This is the top(the purple bead string will have to be sewn on by hand and where it's laying is a rough  idea of how it will look when attached).
 Next is the skirt.  The puffs on the side look much better than I thought they would.  The waist isn't finished yet, nor the hem.  Also, there will be 3(if I get them all done) strands of the purple bead string running completely around the skirt toward the bottom.
 Here is the top without the beads, and the hem still isn't finished yet.
 The pink material is so stiff that the skirt stands on it's own.  It stood on the chair all night.  :)
 And here it is from the back standing.  Crazy huh???   Oh, there is a cape to make to go with this also-hmmmm....will I get all this done?????
I really only have 2 weeks to get this finished and get the Fairy costume(which the material is mostly cut out already) done, because my dad is having surgery the following week.  Oh well, back to work on these next Monday.  :)
