1 yard Brown polka dot jersey fabric
1 yard Tan jersey fabric
2 pairs of white knee socks
Scrap pink sparkly fabric
1 yard sparkly elastic
For the shirts I measured a rectangular piece of the polka dot fabric around each girl. Sew with right sides together and done. Then I sewed a long strip or two of the tan fabric across the top and cut slits to look "fringy." I added a scrap piece of sparkly pink to the front and tied it in a bow behind the neck. Easy.
The leg warmers are made from white knee socks. I cut the feet off at the ankle and sewed long strips of tan jersey all the way around the sock, then cut strips for "fringe." At the top of the sock I added a ruffle with extra polka dot jersey. Easy.
The girls were so excited and they've worn these costumes every day since the party. Sometimes it's the easiest, cheapest projects that make them the happiest. Make something today!
