To sew the costume I started by making a bubble skirt for the bottom layer… I basically followed the wonderful Flouncy Bubble Skirt Tutorial over on Make it and Love it. Instead of attaching it to elastic I sewed in onto my onesie. I then decided it needed an extra skirt layer to I took another piece of my sheer fabric folder it in half the longest way. I did a basting stitch across the open top and gathered. Make it and Love It also has a great gathering tutorial.

The I took a strip of the lining in and the sheer fabric in the length of the onesie waist, stacked them on top of each other, pin to top skirt layer with the sheer fabrics facing each other.

Fold the fabric under and pin to onesie. Make sure it is straight across and sew a top stitch.

I choose to paint on the pearls because I didn’t want to put a necklace around her neck since she is so little.
