Leave it to Bunny to want to dress up like a Christmas tree! Anyone who has met my eldest girl will know that she is a character. She is funny, giggly, loud, full of ideas – and 100% an individual. She relishes being different, and i adore that about her.
So of course when she had a Christmas party to go to, and all the kids were dressing up – she insisted on dressing up as a Christmas tree. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anyone who wanted to dress up as the tree.
Rock on Bunny.
My kids have an amazing ability to convince me to make them almost anything – and the second she requested this costume i knew i absolutely had to make it for her. Immediately.
I used green polyester lining that i had in my stash, and used elastic thread to shir the bodice. It is very long and very simple, and as with all the costumes i make my aim was to make sure she could still wear it comfortably for a few years. The little “ornaments” sewn all over are quite pretty multicoloured shell button things that i accidentally bought a few years ago. I was trying to go for something subtle, as i’m hoping that it means she can also use this dress as a princess dressup when she tires of being the cutest tree ever :) The star is yellow felt sewn to an elastic headband.
So there you have it!
Merry Christmas from me and my ridiculously adorable Christmas tree!
