Ballerina Outfit

  This little outfit is my favorite!  I know I say that about a lot of outfits I make, but this one definitely makes my top five.  I found this pattern at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents, but it is also on Etsy from Tenderfeet Stitches.  It is a faux tie-up bodice with a double (or triple layer) skirt.  The pattern was missing the ruffle pieces, whoops.  Oh well, I figured it out. I used Ballerina handkerchiefs I found from Hobby Lobby.  I thought this would be a cheap project since the handkerchiefs were only $1, but turned out I needed like I bought a yard of purple broadcloth and a that was another $6, you do the math.   Not too expensive I guess, but it sure took a lot of time...all those loops and ruffles!  I really like the sleeves, very unique.  I like that they are not sleeves in the traditional sense (those always seem to double the time on a project anyway) but they still cover her shoulders. Here are the pics of my darling in her darling ballerina outfit:
