A Princely costume for Nursery...

Today was 'Prince/Princess Day' at Jamie's Nursery, so yesterday (I know, last minute lol!) I thought I had probably better sort him out a costume! I went through my fabric stash, and found some red, gold silk/satin look, and purple velvet (result!) and got to work!
First, I made him a very basic rectangles shirt, interfaced the opening at the neck, and added laces...self drafted.
Then, a long red waistcoat with purple trim and gold self covered buttons...again, self drafted.
A short cape, basically 2 circles, one of each colour, with a neck hole cut out of the middle and split from the centre to outer edge, then stitched all round wrong sides together, turned out and stitched round.
A cardboard crown, covered with tinfoil, with sequins and a sparkly gold pipe cleaner, and voila! 
 Prince Jamie, ready to take on the world! 

 Me? I'm a PRINCE??
Ohhhh Yeahhhhhhh!!
So, what do I do now?
Ahhh....'Off with their heads!'

Thanks for looking!

Is there anybody still out there?

HELLO... HELLO... LISA CALLING... IS THERE ANYBODY THERE??? Ha, it's been a while, huh? So much has happened...
