When my daughter asked to be a fairy for Halloween I of course didn’t just buy a fairy costume on Amazon or throw a pair of wings on her dance tutu. I made her become a fairy.
I think it turned out rather fabulous. It was pretty simple to make although fake flowers are wayyyyy more expensive then I thought they’d be.
I made the underdress out of some scrap satin– just a tube dress with ribbon spaghetti straps. I put elastic around the top so that it would go on and off easier. The pink is just chiffon sewn into 2 long rectangles and then criss crossed over her body and tacked in place. I really just sewed it together how it looked the best. If I wanted it to be more gathered in one spot I sewed it there. I knew that with all the flowers on there that washing isn’t an option so that made it so much easier to just sew it how it looked best.
The crown is grapevine with flowers wired on and the shoes were old slippers with flowers hot glued on.
But come on. ..
