Caydi’s Dress Up – Part 9 and Nicci

The Hmong New Years are still months away but Caydi is ready to dress up for them!

Caydi’s outfit here is a “sneak peek” to some other ideas I have coming up. I have so many ideas and projects that I’m sure you are confused with what’s what! I’m sorry! >.< I’m also planning on making Cubli some clothing too, he looks so cold! Lol.

As mention in my last post I bought a dress form and have decided to name her Nicci. It’s been fun having Nicci! She’s a great model and here she is with a skirt I sewed.

This skirt was again Hmong inspired and took me two days to finish. I used four and a half yard of fabric on it. I went to Wal-Mart yesterday hoping to get more of the same fabric to make the skirt a bit more poufy but could not find it at all! I was very disappointed but it’s okay, Wal-Mart hasn’t been very reliable for me as far as fabrics. >.< I came home and decided to just space the pleats out. Instead of using a set waist measurement I did the wrap technique which is how Hmong skirts usually come. I’m very happy with it but am planning on making another one soon and this time I have enough fabric.  😉

Hope you like the new updates. 🙂 Have a great day!
