COSTUME DIY: OlyFun Dress Up Rainbow Bustle
My friend's daughter turned 3 today. Her dad & I are in League of Space Pirates together. She'd nicely requested a version of my Chroma costume. She's too young to understand that my costume it's child appropriate. The word "chroma" has to do with the brightness or pureness of a color. While I always related it to colorfulness, it doesn't exactly mean that. However, to combine that definition with the actual character, I chose to make a rainbow version of my favorite tiered bustle, that is definitely kid friendly. I used 6 colors of Fairfield World OlyFun, which doesn't fray, making it perfect for quickly made dress up clothing, among other uses. You can certainly pick other colors...or metallics, or neutrals...and make it for a grown up. Head over Fairfield World to make this OlyFun Dress Up Rainbow Bustle.
I'm a Master Maker for Fairfield World. You can see my creations for them, on their site and my blog, at least three times a month. They provided me with their products, and pay me to create projects and tutorials. It's a lot of fun. I mean hey, I got to make this sweet rainbow bustle, which had been rattling around in my brain for a few months and just needed a 3 year old for motivation. I know she'll enjoy it for years. I don't often make birthday gifts, but I couldn't resist making this for a special birthday girl.
