Swiss Days

The small town immediately south of my small town was founded by Swiss emigrants, so every year they have the Swiss Days celebration. It's fun. They have a parade, and games, and all sorts of great things. This year they are having some sort of little pageant for kids who wear Swiss costumes.

Anyway, my friend has three kids that she wanted to enter in this pageant thing, but she couldn't find Swiss costumes anywhere! Well, let me rephrase - she couldn't find kids Swiss costumes anywhere. Trashy adult Swiss dresses? Sure, but those just wouldn't work! hahaha!

So, she called me on Wednesday and asked if I could please please please sew some Swiss costumes for her by Friday. Well... SURE! :) I didn't have any patterns, but I had an idea of what we should do that would be cute and simple. I managed to get all three done yesterday. It was a pretty busy day... Anyway, this is the finished product:



I am so happy with how they came out! Not bad for one day of marathon sewing, huh?! :)

Lindsay! Those are so stinkin' cute! Just adorable! We live in central GA but there's a town up north called Helen, GA that looks like a little village in the Alps (not sure why). They do an Oktoberfest and everything! We actually ended up there during it one year because hubby had a conference. It was fun during the day with Thing 1 (pre-Thing 2!) but we decided not to subject her to the nightlife!

Those are SO adorable! I love them. And seriously, why are most costumes trashy anymore. I even saw a harry potter costume (or I suppose it was hermione) that was "sexy"!

You should start selling things like this. They look so good that I would want to buy them, and I don't even have kids, lol. Great job! They're just adorable :D
