I showed you the before and after picture of the dress HERE. But this is now her IN the completed dress.
She is in a State Costume Contest as part of the Louisiana PreTeen academic program going on this weekend.
We decided a Mardi Gras version of a pelican would work. The above picture is supposed to look like the Louisiana Flag.
The nest is made with brown craft paper. The baby pelicans are washcloths. All beaks were cut from a file folder.
The dress was created with a LOT of help from the AWESOME Jessica at Happy Together. You should really go check out her site!
Layer after layer of fabric ruffles added to the underskirt give the illusion of feathers.
As long as The Apprentice sells the dress, she SOOOOO should win!
And I am very very glad to have all of you here with me at the new place. Thank you!!
peace and pieces,
