After a week of diligent sewing and embellishing with hundreds of rhinestones (and a handful of grommets) I am thrilled to say, ‘Lil Elvis is DONE! In fact, it was completed just in time for an event Friday night and Easton really got into character (lots of posing and dancing). Overall, the fit is spot on and really restores my faith in the ‘big 4’ patterns and the amount of ease they seem to put into their designs. The instructions were great and everything (aside from my difficulty with inserting the sleeves) went together without a hitch. Best of Easton loved it and I’m pretty sure that this is my favorite creation of all time.
Here’s a better look and the front and back of the costume without my model:
