Sewing Costumes - Little Flower Girl

Hi Everyone! This week we have a fun, easy to make, and sew project! I love the simplicity of making a costume with the base layers being basic clothing items. Once you begin to layer on accessories and embellishments, the character you're trying to create really comes to life!

The costume I'll be demonstrating today is a darling little flower! With basic green top and bottoms, her body becomes the stem, and with the added petal headpiece, her face becomes the blooming flower! Simple, yet adorable! 

Follow along in the video below to see how easy it is to make this flower costume!

Then go check your fabric stash and see what ideas begin to bloom!

        Was unable to download the LJ Summer in Paris pattern to use for the Costume. Has something changed.
