I only made one full costume this year. Another ladybug. That seems to be a popular costume around here.
New wings using this tutorial. I used felt this time and really liked the result.
The dress is from Simplicity 1991. It is a very easy pattern though there are a bunch of skirt pieces so it takes a bit of time to come together. The red fabric is costume satin. The black sequin fabric is also costume fabric.
The costume is so fabulous that she told her sister (who gathered items from around the house to make her fairy costume) that "people will think you're just a regular person going around town." Sigh. I guess next year I'll have to make everyone a costume so nobody looks just like a "regular person".
I did make another costume. Well, part of a costume but you'll have to wait to see that one. Those of you on facebook have a clue about what it is. Pictures of that one to come!
Did you make any costumes this year?
