Jenna is going to be Strawberry Shortcake for Halloween. . .the new and updated version, not the version I grew up with.
Here she is. I started with a t-shirt pattern and added the contrast skirt. I digitized the embroidery for the bodice. (Sorry, the pictures are just a bit out of focus. I have no idea why--obviously operator-error.)
The hat was a bit of a conundrum. I couldn't figure out how to do the brim of the hat without it flopping or covering her eyes. After making the top part of the hat, which is basically a circle gathered to a ribbing band, I realized that she could wear a visor under the hat, and only the brim would show. The visor started out white, so I painted it green.
I'm not completely done with the hat. It is a bit floppy. I'm going to add some stuffing and the green leaf that goes on top, but I think it is pretty darn cute already!
