I was very excited when Little BB asked me to make her some 'Jasmine Pants.' After all, Jasmine is my favorite princess... And Aladdin is (ahem) most definitely my most favorite prince... sigh...
Anywhoo... We are planning to take BB to a performance of Aladdin next week so I thought it was high time for me to churn this costume out.
This costume was pretty fun to make. I'll admit, I was a bit intimidated by making pants. They are much less forgiving than skirts are (on all kinds of levels). But I was feeling brave.
I also cut off the ankles of the leggings and sewed the bottoms of the pant legs to them to give them that "lumpy" look, as BB likes to call it. I personally prefer the term poufy.
The legs are made of two layers. The bottom layer is taffeta and the top is a sparkly tulle. It has little silver sparkles attached to it. I finished it off with a golden rhinestone trim that I had laying around.
I used the leftover pieces of the leggings to make a tube top. Then, I made a center panel out of the tulle/taffeta combo. I made a sash with the tulle and attached it at various places around the top to create the arms.
Little BB loves her 'lumpy' pants and is very happy dancing around as Jasmine this evening. Also, for some strange reason my husband now wants me to make him as Aladdin costume!
