Cute Strawberry Shortcake Costume for a Girl

This Strawberry Shortcake costume was home sewn. I had a doll of the old version of Strawberry Shortcake and I basically copied it. I used a regular dress pattern and added the white apron. The green diamonds are felt that were appliqued on. The hat was a big circle that I gathered up, added a brim and then sewed on yarn for hair. I also stuffed the hat with stuffing.

There is another entry on this site that helped me get an idea of how to make this! The tights are regular white tights with green electrical tape around them. (I didn’t want to use paint because I didn’t want to take a good pair of tights and make them permanently part of the costume.) I found a sequin strawberry applique and put in on the front of the dress to make it a little more special.
