Old wedding dress, stickers and some polar fleece!

The issue is always jackets over costumes.  This year I decided to make each kid polar fleece outfits to go under their costumes.  My 9 yr. old came up with the idea of a winter fairy...as I stared into my stash a light bulb went off:  that old wedding dress I found at the thrift store years ago will work well here!  So i tool off the top, kept the skirt.  Made a new top, and let my kids go to town with the stickers!  The wings and wand came from the dollar store...wish I had a better picture of the wand--it got covered with stickers too!

They were all so happy with the results!  And of course wanted to post it on craftster right away!  Smiley

Just in case anyone is intested in what the original dress looked like:
