Big and red

One of the girls is going to a fantasy fair. And though she promised me I wouldn't have to help her make a dress this year (like we did last year and the year before), suddenly plans changed. A different group of friends, a different idea about costumes. They were going as the seven deadly sins (I know - how do they come up with things like that?) and she was going to be "anger".
I asked her what kind of costume she was thinking about and she said: a long dress. Big and red.
We decided there was no time (or money) to sew a dress from scratsch, so I found this gem at the market.

Not "big" enough, so I added three layers of tule.

That sounds easier then it was, but the result was great. She loved it.
And, well, I've got to admit, these silly dresses are actually quite fun to work on...
