Little Lizard King Ani-Mazing Suspender Skirt


 Today a really adorable pattern is releasing- Little Lizard King's Ani-Mazing Suspender Skirt!!!!  I had the privilege of testing this pattern and it's just the best.  Pattern is 20% off this weekend with code Animals20.
 
 

 I jumped on the chance to test it since my daughter chose to have a fox birthday party theme for her 8th birthday in Oct.  She's the biggest animal lover and her favorite stuffed animal is Foxxy (her spelling!).

 Here he is-FOXXY!!!  Of course I had to make ears to match.  I'll post a tutorial this week on how to make these from scraps. 
 I couldn't believe my luck (or hoarding habit) to happen to have the PERFECT buttons for the skirt.  Thanks to Jo-Ann's clearance section.  The colors matched exactly and I love that the hearts are off center and tilted a bit.
 Here's my kinda toothless girl striking her fox pose.  I said she could do it and man, immediately I got a real smile, and not a fake one.  She loves to do PAWS!

 It really was a fun photo shoot.  She's become so wonderful about modeling for me.  I hate that she keeps growing....
 I'm thinking of selling these in my etsy shop, so let me know if you're interested.  My first one took a while to make, but now I think I will be faster. 
 The buttons for the eyes are gorgeous vintage ones with black and gold that I got in a local antique store.  They just look like eyes to me.
 Skirt fox fabric is at Jo-Ann's right now and I got it with my 40% off coupon.  I think it's in Novelty section.  Bought the red/orange and white there too to match.  I don't use my dress form too much but it's from IKEA and nice and affordable.
 This pattern also has directions and pattern pieces for a cat, dog, mouse and bunny!!!!  I can't handle it.  The test photos are precious.

I really love testing since I need deadlines to actually try new things.  It's been so much fun and I'm hoping to offer lots of custom outfits in my etsy shop.
