i made this for my 4 yr old’s halloween costume. i took simplicity 2073 and used it as a base to build a bee costume. i took each of the skirt panel pieces and cut them into 2" sections which i pieced together to make the stripes. the dress is fully lined in yellow with boning at the hem to shape it. i hand stitched a stinger to backside, made wings and a headband to complete the look. to read more, please visit my blog!
