Niki Makes Totally Stitchin’ Proud

November 17, 2008 in General


At a recent Halloween party, my friend Niki showed up in this amazing Snow White dress. The best part? She made it!!

Niki hasn’t sewn since 6th grade, but she really wanted to be Snow White this year and couldn’t find a costume at the local shops. So, she asked her Grandmother to help her create this amazing dress:

Look how pretty! Niki and her Grandma used a pattern, and she said that it took about 30 hours to sew the dress, over the course of 2 ½ weeks. That’s pretty amazing, considering some people spend a longer time making a costume out of cardboard that doesn’t look nearly as great.

By making this costume, Niki learned three of my favorite things about the magic of sewing:

1. If you can’t find it, you can always sew it.

2. It’s a great way to spend time with a family member or friend (and sewers LOVE to share the fun!).

3. NOTHING is more fun than being able to say, “I made it!”

I think next year she is going to add some little bluebirds to the cape, which I find hilarious and awesome.

Anyway, Niki was Queen of the Halloween Party Рdefinitely the fairest of them all. We were all impressed and very proud of her (though I’m guessing her Grandma was the proudest.)
