I finished Turtle’s fairy costume today, and while I wouldn’t want to spoil the Halloween surprise, here are a few of the (very) girly details.
The dress has a scalloped neckline, with ribbon flowers.
The skirt: several layers of pink satin and tulle.
The wings are the piece de resistance. Wire hanger and pantyhose? Puh-lease. These wings are organza – with SPARKLES.
I have to say that despite the weird construction (“traditional” patterns make no sense to me), this is one cute fairy. More importantly, Turtle loves it. She agreed that it is “gorgeous,” although in full disclosure I must admit that she doesn’t really know how to use this word correctly.
