the barbie musketeer costumes continue to be one of the most popular things on my blog. who would have guessed, right?
i made two musketeers this year-- one pink and one purple. the pink one didn't make to the photography session, but it looked just like this one, only pinker!
once in a while, when i look back at the things i made or wrote on this blog long ago, i am tempted to edit it or re-write it. but really that is the truest form of accomplishment-- seeing how far you have come and how much you have learned along the way.
this little costume is one of those perfect examples. as i have re-made it many times over the years, it has changed and become easier to make, easier to wear--just better!
it is now a one-piece dress, instead of four seperate pieces. and the boots needed a transformation so that I can make and ship them to someone far away.
maybe a little bit simpler, but still pretty darn cute, don't ya think?
