Fresh Beat Band Tour & Dress

Delilah is a big fan of the show "Fresh Beat Band". So when they announced a tour, we bought tickets right away.
And of course, D needed a new dress for the occasion.
The Fresh Beat Band has four characters, Kiki, Marina, Twist and Shout. Delilah decided to be Marina. So....here's a pic of the character Marina.
And here is Delilah as little Marina!
Delilah had such a wonderful time. Heck, we all did. The show was high energy and fun. And since we had great seats upfront, Delilah got lots of waves and attention from the band as she moved and grooved and danced along.
Despite being SO excited, when Delilah got her chance to meet the Fresh Beats and get her picture taken with them, she got a little shy.
But this gave Marina a great opportunity to play peek-a-boo with Delilah and make her giggle. I don't have a picture of that but we have the memory, and that was pretty cool.
Hanging from Delilah's neck are a glowing stick and her afterparty pass. She had SUCH a good time that even after the party, way past bedtime, she was in a silly, happy, mood.

Oh, the dress! I made a peasant dress from this free pattern on fabric.com, and made up the little tab fronts. I sewed the buttons right on the dress and made the belt buckle from wool felt.
And...the Fresh Beats announced ANOTHER tour date back in Atlanta. So come August maybe we'll have more success with that photo op!



  1. I love, love this!! IT came out so beautiful!

  2. Absolutely adorable! Plus, it's not too costume-y - something she can definitely wear again.

  3. So cute! I didn't even know Marina had a new dress... we're still watching the "old" Marina. lol

  4. would you be willing to make another one?? email me at bskinard@gmail.com if so :) thanks!
