Infant Olivia Costume

Are you sort of tired of that little piglet, yet?
Well, this might change your mind:
 Yes, I did dress my 4-month-old boy up in a red tutu dress and tights. But isn’t he adorable?!
 I had a couple orders for infant Olivia costumes, and wanted to make sure they fit!! I also thought I would switch the costume up a little to be more age-appropriate.
 I used soft, 100% organic cotton onesies for the bodice, and added the sailor collar, and some layers of red tulle for the skirt. I used this simple pattern to make sure the little footed tights (’cause this kid won’t be walking:) and they turned out adorable.
 The collar on these onesies (from H&M) button at the shoulder, so I made the collar out of cotton jersey and sewed it on with a stretch stitch, so that the opening still had it’s ability to fit over a baby head, large as they are! Of course I still added those classic stars to the corners.
For the ears, I used a few inches of a pair of nude tights and added little stick-up ears of felt. The headband stretches right on and fits comfortably and stays in place.
Dressing up my boys is almost as fun as having a girl, and without the teen years:) It’s the best of both worlds!
*I no longer make this costume to sell*

    Okay, THIS is hysterical. I love that you dressed him up AND took pictures?! He's gonna love that in about 15 years 🙂 The costumes is to-die-for adorable.

    Also, your stickers are darling! Look at you, having companies contact you and having your own discount code and everything. I'll be able to brag that I knew you before you were famous 😉

    Hi I am interested in this dress. However I will not need it till October 2013…I am planning my daughters first birthday party to be the Olivia theme. Not sure what size she would be then. I don’t want to wait till the last minute to order this and your not available. So if you could give me some kind of idea when I should place my order I would really appreciate it(:

    Just adorable – I’m and artist and I can draw and do a lot of other creative things but I can’t sew!!!! My granddaughter Olivia is turning 1 on March 2nd – any way I could get an outfit?? Thank You in advance… and if I could possibly do anything for you I certainly would – although I have a feeling you have it ALL under control!!!! You creations are just AMAZING! Please let me know about the outfit.
    Thank you! Melanie
