My oldest daughter is to be Glenda the Good Witch from Wizard Of Oz for Halloween.  I'm not yet finished with her dress, but I did finish the crown and I'm SOOOOOO happy with it...  More pictures an information about it (and other Halloween costume projects) on my blog (link in my signature).

Oh, that's so sweet. So much nicer than those plastic garbage crowns.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

Oh my goodness, this is so perfect!  I am making a pink satin 1st birthday ballgown (which, incidentally, I keep thinking looks like Glinda's dress) and this crown is just what I've been looking for!  May I ask if it was from a pattern or did you make it up yourself?  I'm struggling with trying to figure out how to keep it standing straight. 

PS - We're going to do Wizard of Oz next year, too!  Smiley

Thank you!  I didn't use a pattern, I just drew a pattern myself - then used that to cut out timetex (this is what makes it stiff enough to stand up).  Then I just traced by facing and lining fabric, using the timetex cutout as a guide.

I can't wait to see your ballgown and crown!!!!  I do hope that you'll share it on here!!
