A few months ago, I was spending a lot of time in the CEM forum with a couple of awesome tutu makin' mommas Trinity's Tutus and MamaShai. I love tutus. I love ballet. I love Cyndi Lauper! So, I ordered up the tulle, and set myself up just right to make a tutu. hmmmm...
1st attempt... Lil' Patchwork Frou Frou Skirt. I just could not leave it alone! I added the overskirt, ruffles, yarn.... I threw everything in my arsenal at it! I can not make a simple tutu folks! These lil' frou frous are deeply rooted in my undying love and obsession, since birth, for all things Pippi.
Lil' Gothic Lolita Frou Frou This little one was inspired by the youth culture in Tokyo that flaunt their style around the Harajuku Station. My Lil' Gothic Lolita is fashioned in the kurorori style (black lolita)I have had this awesome Alexander Henry fabric for quite some time now, I originally purchased it when I lived in California to recover a child's boudoir chair a friend had given me. Ahhh... my goth roots are showing again!
Harajuku Eye Patch
One really needs an eyepatch to enhance their frou frou experience, don'tcha think! Once again... those stylish Japanese kids. This one is in the guro style (injured! lol)
So, next up at the Pumpkinhaus I will be working on pettiskirts. But not just any old commonplace pettiskirt.... Pumpkinhaus Pettiskirts! I promise you... there will be absolutely no puckered up babies wearing make up in these fabulous petti's. Here is a sampling of what is to come!
