Who would have thought that she might ever want to dress as something other than a princess at some point in her life. I still can't quite believe it.
But she was very clear. A clown - with a striped shirt, a bow tie, a red nose and a wig of red curls.
I tried to make a sort of girly version of a striped shirt and one that she can wear even when she's not a clown. I just have to make a little sewing time go a long, long way.
The bow tie makes me smile. It's a made of one of the last scraps of one of my favourite fabrics, (previously used here and here and here). So next time I get mad at all the fabric stacked into our tiny flat I'll look at it.
