Wasnt sure where to put this but she wanted me to share her pics with everyone  Smiley

I made this costume for her for a thing we have here called Cruise Night where everyone dresses like this and theres a dance, band, games, etc. Its a good time and the kids love it.
Her skirt, the dice on her skirt, purse,and wristband are all made from felt. For her hair I tied a pink scarf in it and drilled holes through dice to string on ribbon to wrap around her ponytail.

that is so cute! It's amazing how the fifties have hit big timewith the kids again. But More and more adults are into it as well. We sell the skirts and saddle shoes the pink satin jackets and it's just incredible that every age loves the era!

Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.

Thanks everyone! It was a lot of fun making it and she of course had a blast and the cool thing is the costume is very re-useable for other occassions. I am thinking of throwing her a 50's birthday partry this year so she can wear it again.

ali_ababwa: Thanks, I am glad you thought so too, I wanted to go with something other than a poodle knowing every other person would be wearing poodles and sure enough she was the only one with a dice theme Smiley
