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.

I have to admit that this is one of my favorite costumes I have ever made - SuperBex to the rescue. My son decided pretty last minute last year what he wanted to be, but he also designed the costume himself and is still wearing it a year later!!!!! As a mom, I love the fact that we can take our children's whims and fancies and bring them to life.
Today Nicole is sharing her adorable witches. The patterns are Made for Mermaids (which if you haven't tried yet are simple, easy to follow, and have fantastic results), and the fabric and notions are all from Joanns - no need to order anything special that isn't going to come in on time!!! Check out the adorableness, and good luck with finishing all your costumes before Halloween arrives.
