Christmas Elf!

 So, instead of doing the Cindy Lou costume
for the Christmas party,
My daughter wanted to be a Pink Elf from Rudolph!
Here's the motivation:
this worked great, because I had tons of pink material!
I had some quilted lining too...so I made a pointy stiff hat.

 For the top...super simple.
folded over rectangle, sewn up the sides,
arm holes left...circle cut for neck.
all cut edges hemmed.
 simple.  yes.  that's my middle name.
 8 same sized panels for the skirt.
4 inches across the top.  Room for hemming.
 all 8 panels sewn right sides out...then flipped
and sewn right sides together.
(invisible stitch or something...)
 full flared skirt...ready to sew onto the top piece.
  ta da.
add a fur collar...
Completed and at the Christmas Party:
(what?  so I failed and didn't get a pic of her by herself...so sue me!)
