My DD wanted to have an I dream of Genie come Princess Jasmine costume for her birthday party a few months ago.
I went on a hunt both online and offline to find a suitable outfit.
Keywords I used:
- Genie including Jeanie
- Princess Jasmine
- Arabian Princess
- Belly dancer
specifications of course! I used some pattern pieces from several different sources and altered them to create just the right outfit. Did I succeed? According to my daughter I did. Yay!!! What a relief!
The fabrics I used were plain turquoise satin, sequined teal satin, sequined turquoise stretch, and turquoise organza. The trims were some beaded ribbon and some pretty buttons. The left over trims I used to decorate DD's hair and create a genie type headband (i'm not sure of the correct term). All in all It was a success and a fun challenge for me to make.
