Halloween 2014 is almost here. I am sure you have also noticed the Halloween themes, or hints here and there, on internet, on TV, on advertisements etc. It will be here before we know and some of us are already thinking of what costume to get for Halloween 2014. Well, I will write another post solely about that issue right after this post of mine, but long story short, Great Gatsby style dresses and costumes have been quite hot for some time already; give a thought to it. As to children, well, why not also for them, a 1920s Great Gatsby style dress.
It gives any woman a nice and sweet feeling watching her little “mini me ” getting dressed in a similar fashion ! So I come up with the idea to Upcycle some of the little dresses for little ” mini me’s ” for Gatsby or Edwardian events that are very popular nowadays.
You could complete the costume by getting 1920s era jewelry, accessories, such as gloves and headbands and purses etc. You little daughter will look adorable in that costume. You be sure with that…
This little cutie I upcycled from basic white cotton little girls dress; all fully lined , hand dyed in off white / ivory tone for antique look ! I added a pretty lace skirt to it, changes the little buttons for the gold ones, made a sash from the same lace texture , added a little lace around the neck area and on the back of the dress too. Cute little handmade flower pin comes with the dress !
