For Halloween this year, Tiny the T. rex decided to be Elizabeth I of England. She looked through books until she found a dress she liked (the jewel encrusted gown of the Ditchley portrait), then asked her Aunt Rexie if she could help her with her costume.
Aunt Rexie took one look, sighed, and then got out her sewing kit. After all, she adores Tiny. She spent days putting “gems” and ribbon on fabric before she could even begin sewing the dress, but the end result, and the happy look on Tiny’s face, was well worth the effort.
Note: This is probably the most elaborate costume I’ve ever made. What was yours?

Made me smile! Aunt Rexie reminds me of my mother, who always made our costumes with extra panache. Thought I never went as Elizabeth 1, she would have happily sewn jewels on a gown for me. Tiny is lucky to have Aunt Rexie.
What a lovely memory. My mother sewed for us, too, as well as teaching us how to do it.
Aunt Rexie is getting so talented! Very nice work.
Aunt Rexie works hard and she appreciates your compliment.
Wow! Love the beading it’s fabulous 🙂
Thanks. It was really fun to do.
