I booked Princess Lollipop's birthday party this evening, it's going to be a Pirate and Princess Party at an indoor play centre. Predictably Princess Lollipop wants to be a pirate and DEFINITELY NOT a Princess, she's a girl who knows her own mind :-)
After some poking about on Pinterest we found a pirate costume that suited both of us, boyish enough for Princess Lollipop and girlie enough for me - result :-) It's going to be a red and black tutu skirt, a white t-shirt with lacy ruffles down the front and then a corset style bodice over the top. She'll also wear black and white stripe tights, a pirate fabric headband and most important to Princess Lollipop a toy cutlass :-)
I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into making the costume :-) Fingers crossed that this year she actually agrees to wear the costume I make!! Unlike last year's batman tutu costume!!
