Here is my Little Bo Peep. I dreamed of this costume from the time I knew was having a daughter. I come from a family of Boys. Lots and lots of them. So having a little girl is kind of the bees knees around here. You know the stars,moons and planets aligned kind of thing. She is my Joy and my Muse...
|Little Bo Peep Costume|
I wanted so badly to make her a Little Bo Peep. Last year was the year to do it. Her little costume was a labor of love. I looked at a lot of pictures of Bo peep costumes. I came up with this.
I started with a basic peasant top. I used my Simply Jane pattern. I just made the shirt white.
For the skirt I made a basic skirt but doubled the fabric to make it more full. I added a little lace to fancy it up.
For the bloomers I used a basic capri of pajama pattern. I added 3 rows of lace to the bottoms for ruffles. (Lace and fabric from Joanns)
Her crook was an after Christmas sale candy cane I got for .25 cents. I wrapped it with white ribbon and added a large Pink bow.
Her little lamb was an after Easter sale at Target we picked up for $2.00
For her vest I used an old t shirt and cut off the arms and cut down the neck line as my pattern. Then I used black velvet and lined it with some scrap fabric.I used some turquoise fabric and cut 2 half circles. I gathered the half circles and pinned them to the vest. Sew vest with right sides together, leave a small opening and turn. Top stitch the vest. I then added small grommets for lacing.
