Over the summer, I came across the cutest little peacock costume for a baby. It is by Creatively Christy who also posted a tutorial for said costume. I fell in love and of course had to come up with my own version, shown below.
I only made a couple changes to the tail feather. I put a bunch of fake flowers to cover the bottom of the feathers and I sewed the satin parts together rather than glueing. I had trouble finding orange tights that I liked, so I found another tutorial for leg warmers. Instead of a ruffle at the bottom as the tutorial prescribes, I did pleats. I found the onesie at H&M and added a little ruffle to the top with some of the satin I used on the feathers. The shoes I got on sale at Carters. I crocheted a little crown for her with beads, but she doesn't like it so I will probably not use it. Here are instructions for a super cute little crown, though. The only thing I would like to add is some more sequins to the front of the satin "feathers", but otherwise, I love it!
