Rumi: The Fairy Princess

Every year I tell myself that I am going to design and sew a costume for Rumi – something fabulous  and creative – but I just realized that I don’t have time to go to the store and search for one let alone sew one from scratch! Running a business full-time while juggling motherhood leaves no time for crafty projects – the kind I envisioned myself doing with my kids when I thought about what it would be like to be a mom.  This year, Rumi wanted to be Tinkerbell for Halloween. I found a princess fairy costume from some Halloween store, and paired it with a silver tulle skirt I picked up at Target to create more fullness.   In the end, she was super excited which was all that mattered! And I don’t think she will care if the costume was custom made or store bought – she was just happy to wear a tiara and hold a wand (which begs the question – why do all little girls want to be princesses and fairies??)
