Yesterday I shared with you the silver glitter fabric, mint tulle net and neon pink felt I bought to make my niece Maisy's collection as she loves clothes, glitter, pink and dressing up. I decided to go for a mint, neon pink and glitter collection after being inspired by the silver glitter fabric. I played with a couple of different colour options but as soon as I went through my embellishment jars and found lots of gorgeous mint coloured sew on crystals and neon studs my mind was made up!
Rather than making her a bunch of pretty co-ordinate accessories like her older sister Molly I really wanted to make her a party style outfit with a tutu as she loves wearing tutus! I started by sketching up a mini book bag in the silver fabric, adding a neon pink felt rose to match the neon pink sequins I was planning on filling the hem with. Next I drew up the tutu with a neon pink bow at the waist and a hem filled with neon pink sequins. I sketched up lots of ideas for the top, but to keep it modern I decided to put it with a white tee that I could embellish with the mint sew on crystals. Lots of sketches later I finally decided on doing crystal embellished shoulders with a neon pink sew on beaded necklace.
To complete the outfit I decided to make an assortment of sparkly DIY bobby pins and neon felt flower hairband.
I will of course share all the sewing and craft tutorials over the next few weeks...
