Jessie's Outfit & New Stuff

Elora's made-by-Mama birthday gift is a Jessie costume to wear at her party, and any time she wants to play dress up.  

I took a cotton knit shirt from Target and a pair of jeans and added to them.

The binding on the collar, the red loops, and the cow print on the jeans were added by hand.  The rest was machine stitched.   I wasn't trying for an exact duplicate of Jessie's outfit, just an approximation.  For example, I didn't even try to bring the yellow panel down to points on the shirt.  She already has a little pair of brown boots, and I ordered a hat from The Disney Store to complete the look.

Edit:  Ack!  I just realized that I forgot the gray buttons on the shirt.  Should I add them, or just let it go?

So excited for the party---this weekend!!


  1. It's perfect the way it is! Very cute!

  2. It looks great! (p.s. on the buttons, I didn't notice until you put the edit. You can always add them later if she notices, but it looks great as is!)

  3. I think it's adorable and unless she requests buttons, keep it as is!! She will love her little outfit, what fun!!

  4. It is adorable and I agree, if she doesn't notice, don't worry about the buttons at all! What fun!!

  5. they turned out great! Can't wait to see her in it! Im everyone else I wouldn't bother adding the buttons unless she wants them.
