So my daughter's 7th birthday was three weeks ago and she wanted to have a Frozen themed party. Well, the decorations were easy because it was just after Christmas and we were able to find lots of snowflakes and ice themed things. The hard part was a costume in her size. Even on line I couldn't find anything less that $80 and there was just no way (sorry kiddo) I was gonna pay that. So, with 5 days to go, I went to the fabric store and got all the fixings for an outfit.
I drafted the whole thing myself and decided to make it a top and bottom instead of a whole dress so it can grow with her if she likes.

And I apologize for it being sideways. I've been trying for the last 30 min to get them to flip, but when they do, they are all stretched out. So, they will stay sideways lol

WOW you did an amazing job!!!!  That looks super cute and your daughter looks very beautiful in it.  I bet she feels like a princess when she wears it.

Is she still wearing the dress for dress up play?


I didn't see the movie when it came out, but just saw it recently when it came out on DVD, and while I don't get into a lot of kids movies, but this one I fell in love with.  The characters, songs and scenes. 

I bet your daughters party was a hit with everyone that attended.


PS as far as turning pictures you can try paint.net it's a free download and I have been using it for more years than I care to admit.  At least 8 years perhaps longer....  I replace my laptop over 2-3 years and I've had to download it several times when I got a new laptop.  They advertise if you paid a penny for it you paid too much because they offer it free.  Totally worth it!!!   But I love the program as you can do a lot of things with photos on it.   Another program I can't live without is....  http://www.ribbet.com/app/?edit_photo#/home/welcome  you can get the upgrades for the premium features free right now as well.   This isn't a download and it's just a program that you use online.   If anyone used picnik and was devastated when they closed the site it's just like picnik but under the name ribbet instead.... So depending on what I am doing with my pictures I use both programs quite often.

I make soap and other "cosmetics" as defined by the FDA and in my spare time I sew.... Sewing is therapy for me in dealing with life stresses and my chronic pain.  When I hurt and can't sew, I plan what I want to sew.  I also have a great husband, three kids and three fur kids.....

Thank you! I will definitely try ribbet! For a while, it was only a few pictures coming up sideways and now it seems like every single one :/.
And she totally wears it for dress up play still Cheesy - at the moment it's back on my sewing machine b/c she's worn it so much she put a 5 inch hole in the hem lol. Easy fix, though.

Thanks again!
