Renaissance Faire Costumes

This year I made 5 costumes for the Santa Fe Renaissance Faire! It was a blast!

For my outfit I designed the top, skirt and overskirt. The vest is Simplicity 3618.

Billy's outfit is made using a pattern from Making Baby's Clothes for the top. Pants are an out of print Butterick pattern that I don't remember the #. Vest is designed by me.
(Someone gave him funnel cake. cough cough brian cough...)

I designed Brian's vest and made his boots. Top and pants are McCalls 5446

This is Michael's costume. I designed the vest, bracers and the shirt. Pants are Butterick 4574. This is the first time I have worked with pleather. I kind of like it. So easy to work with and no finishing required!

This is Craig's costume. I designed the shirt. Pants are again Butterick 4574.

Craig said "What is funnel cake?" This is funnel cake.

I'm a dragon!

Kids Clothes Weeks Fall 2012

I am so excited to participate in Kids Clothes Week again! I find that it is so much more pleasant to work on clothes for Billy because I don't have so many fitting issues to worry about. I'll have to start searching for my patterns!

The 52 Dresses Project

The 52 Dresses Project. How could I resist? Of course I want to have 52 dresses in my wardrobe! At least this one gives me a very long time to participate. I will have to count up all my dresses and see where I stand. I have tons of patterns that I want to try. (And more that I want to buy and try but we don't really have to talk about that...)
