This year for Shrovetide my little girl didn't want to be a princess again. But she still wanted to be pretty, so I made this forest fairy dress for her.

I don't know if Shrovetide is celebrated everywhere, but we have it on the 23th of february. Children dresses up and a barrel gets beaten until candy falls out. Sometimes the children is going from house to house singing and gets candy.

The skirt is 3 layers of transparent and very soft fabric. One of the fabrics are used for the top, but with not-transparent fabric beneath. Happy sewing.

Hej Jannie. Ej hvor sjovt. Jo modellen er fra Stof og Stil, jeg har også planer om at bruge mønstret til sommerkjole. Jeg bor mellem Århus og Silkeborg, tæt ved Låsby.

Please forgive us. We come from such a small country and are not used to "meet" one another "out in the world". We are just discussing where to buy the pattern for the dress and where we live.

We celebrate Shrove Tuesday however it is more of a Christian festival, rather than a general one. Traditionally we eat pancakes and have games and lots of fun before the beginning of Lent the following day, being Ash Wednesday. Your daughter must have looked so sweet in her fairy dress.. my girls would love it :)
