It's been a while that Julianna has been asking me to buy her doll pajamas... I was horrified to see that her dolls' clothes were more expensive than some of mine. :-) So I had been thinking of making the pajamas myself, although I am not a sewing pro. This past week I had a brilliant idea. I have been getting rid of my pregnancy clothes, and when I came across my purple pregnancy dress, my first thought was, "I have got to get rid of this thing, but who in the world is going to wear this? It looks like a night gown." Then the brilliant idea hit me - I am going to use this dress to make the doll and Julianna matching pajama bottoms. The dress' fabric looks brand new and would be perfect and free. After the decision was made, I researched online on how to do the job.
I learned how to make a Ballerina Bun for my daughter's dance recital. She received many compliments. Here is how I made it. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Things you'll need
Untangle hair. (Dirty hair is easier to work with - so don't wash hair before styling!)
Using gel, slick hair back and make a pony tail.
Divide pony tail in three equal parts.
Roll middle part up using a marker.
With marker still in place, secure loop with bobby pins and then gently remove marker. Repeat with other two parts of hair, rolling one to the left and the other to the right.
Close gaps between parts with bobby pins. Put some hair spray all over. If it's for a dance recital, put on a hair net that matches the hair color and secure with bobby pins (you can find hair nets at Sally's).
