Yikes! We've got to that stage in Evie's life where parties are becoming a regular occurrence which means lots of fancy dress.
Which is great. I love fancy dress but I don't want to be going out buying loads of stuff for one off parties.
I know Evie will wear the costumes again and again as she loves dressing up but this could be an expensive affair....
We have a party this Saturday... Pirates and Mermaids.... a mermaid costume is £18, not bad, not bad, but this month we're trying to not spend a thing.
SO that means Mama needs to stretch her creative hands and drag out the sewing machine. God help us all!
Yep I have a sewing machine and I think it has seen the light of day at least 3 times now over the past 4 years!
Evie is in for a delight. I am full of fear and apprehension about this.
I trawled the interweb for ideas and was shocked at what people thought was 'easy' to make.
I did however find a cornucopia of amazing fancy dress!
Check out these beauties.
Now, how do I thread a sewing machine again.....?
