Pretty DIY PetticoatsBy Partycraftsecrets
If you have little girls who like to look different to last party, here's a quick way to make everything old new again:
The layering idea is simple; pick a pretty party dress AND a pretty tutu (skirt only) and put the dress over the tutu. The great thing about this combination is that the dress is given plenty of extra volume and a petticoat look as the frills and tulle of the tutu inevitably peek out from under the dress.
In terms of using feathers the idea is to find a few coloured feathers to match the dress (I bought a bag of 'coloured craft feathers' at my local discount-dollar-store) and slip them into a hair clip. You could of course get fancy with hot glue guns and the like, but I find that they stay in place simply by clipping them in. (Lotti has the clip-on variety while Mimi is wearing a borrowed headband.)
The great thing about this new look is that it is fast, easy, free, and oh so pretty. My girls transformed into tiny divas in a moment... all for the sake of a school disco dance!
So next time you're dressing your little girl and wondering how-to... just layer and feather her!
