So, my daughter is a total Doctor Who nut. Even more so than her older brother, but nowhere near as crazy for the show as my husband and I
So when i asked her what she wanted her costume to be this year, she shouted "TARDIS!"
And geek parent pride bubbled over.
So of course I wanted to make her not only a TARDIS outfit, but also something she would want to wear again. So I designed and made a poofy-bum blue TARDIS princess dress for her and she proudly adorns it at every opportunity and much to my joy has caused many an envious stare whilst at the shops!
Inspired by the gorgeous period dress in the episode "The Doctor's Wife", original design on the fly by me, fabric and notions from Spotlight.
N.B. It's a warm spring over here at this time of year, thus the no sleeves
All the little details: quilting cotton, soft tulle, elastic in the back, lace, paint pens
"yay, Mummy!!" (or so i assume... lol)
