The adorable not quite 3 year-old asked me for a Strawberry Shortcake costume for her special evening of trick-or-treating at Disneyland tomorrow night. And in the spirit of full disclosure, she actually calls her "Strawberry Cupcake". Which is I suppose a bit of linguistic progress from the very recent "Barbie Cupcake".
p.s. I love her. sigh.
Looking around at the available costumes and checking out the real deal for inspiration, I threw caution to the wind and took the costume road less traveled.
This is what was on my sewing machine this morning.
We are now moving on to the hat and the treat bag. Stay tuned for a photo of the finished ensemble! And happy costuming, all you moms and nanas out there... :)
