My daughter and her friends love to dance! When this recital costume came home, I knew she’d love to have a matching one for her doll. The studio had one extra costume and from it I was able to make 4 little girls very happy! I carefully cut apart the girl sized costume, after examining closely how it was put together so I could replicate it in a much smaller version. I modified a doll sized basic leotard pattern and combined it with the Strappy Tank Top pattern. The hardest part was sewing on the super cute tutu, but after a few try’s I got it right. The butterfly applique was carefully cut apart to make the smaller ones. Now my daughter and her friends have a great keepsake to keep for years to come! I plan to have the doll costume in a shadow box frame with a picture of her dancing when she’s a bit older and doesn’t want to play with it.
