The local museum wished to celebrate the flight of Yuri Gargarin, the first man in space, and of course Space Girl had to go along.
The pattern was a simple one I actually used previously on this octopus dress, when I first joined spoonflower (and completely unrelated, started sewing more frequently). McCall’s M6027. I wrote a review of this pattern here: McCall’s Dress M6027 ★★★
The fabric is one of Spoonflower’s most popular galaxy prints. But, it wasn’t quite evocative of a true midnight sky… It needed something more.
I used the excellent bedazzling skills I learned at halloween to give the dress a little extra sparkle.
The dress was a big hit, everyone loved it. There was even a place where you could pose with real space-gear in front of the moon mural. Science Girl couldn’t fit the helmet on her head, so she chose the boot instead.
