Very proud to say that despite only being in our new home a little more than a week I was able to set aside a day to make my girls their requested costumes.
Amanda wanted to be a fairy, so with her love of texture I made the bodice out of velvet and the skirt is lined in purple satin and with an over skirt of over dyed sheer with a squabble of course. Then a set of over sized wings at a bargain price of $5 made for a happy young girl.
Don't you just love the socks!
Then Fiona wanted to be a woodland pixie. I was firmly told that pixie don't have wings! For this I used a dress she already owns that is a red mesh with an underlay of metallic purple. I made the skirt as a separate item with a sparkly green sheer. Then purchased two autumn floral pieces that I deconstructed and sewed onto the skirt, dress and a hair comb to give the woodland effect.
