Science Girl Goes To Space

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.
