For Halloween this year, my girls asked to be Rosetta and Silvermist from the Tinkerbell Fairy Friends. They love the Tinkerbell movies (thanks, Netflix) and picked their two favorite characters. I adapted several patterns from Violette Field Threads.
For Kenzie’s Rosetta costume, I started with the Alice, Scarlett and Viola patterns. For the top, I used the Alice bodice lining, extended the length of the bodice to be a cropped top, and switched out a button placket for a zipper closure. There was no way I was sewing buttonholes in that rosette mesh fabric!! For the skirt, I used the Scarlett waistband and skirt length measurement. I used the scallop shape from the Viola pattern to create petal-like skirt pieces.
For Honor’s Silvermist costume, I used the Stella dress and Clover skirt patterns. The bodice of the dress was made from the Stella bodice and ruffle. For the skirt, I cut the back of the Clover skirt pattern, but then for the front I made it into two pieces. I followed the curve of the front piece up towards the top of the skirt to make a wrap-skirt effect. I shortened the ruffle of the Clover skirt to be a bit more dainty.
For the wings, I used several tutorials on Pinterest to get the final shape/look they had requests. I used wire to shape the wings and then slid girls’ tights over the wire to cover the wings. I made a simple harness from clear elastic. To add some detail, I hot glued silk flowers and drew scrolling lines with glow-in-the-dark puffy paint.
