Over the past two weeks, I've been working with a wonderful mom to create a custom birthday outfit package for her adorable little girl who is having a unicorn themed party for her 10th birthday! Working around her colorful theme, I created six one-of-a-kind, over-the-top pieces including a dress, legwarmers, a head bow, earrings, a necklace and a birthday pin. Each piece has tons of rainbow colors, glitter/rhinestones/sparkle and is just all around awesome. I am so excited to send these goodies on their way and I can't wait to see her rockin' it! I had so much fun with this project and I'm so happy with the end result!
I designed everything around her party decor.
I used a cloud print fabric for the base of the dress. The side panels of the skirt are white with rainbow colored ruffles.
The design is very inspired by my Care Bear dress I made for myself a while back. (If you'd like to see, here's a link! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=420102.20#axzz2wLZE2FXv)
I made the unicorn applique with felt and outlined it with rhinestones. I added some rainbow rhinestone stars around it for some more detail.
She also wanted some matching legwarmers and a head bow.
This might not technically belong here but it's mostly sewn, so I'll stick it in. Haha.
One of my original designs, a hair bow with unicorn horn attached! She wanted ears as well so I tweaked my design a bit to fit them in. The horn is covered in rhinestones. She wanted lots of bling so I incorporated it into every piece.
I'll update this post when the mama sends me pictures of her daughter wearing her goodies so you all can see how they look on. Thanks for looking!
