Oh I feel like you’re lost with my title. Believe me, so was I a few days ago. 😀
A year. An entire year that my daughter kept telling me “for the next carnival, I want to be dressed as Elsa in Frozen”. I prepared the pattern and the supplies list, and the day before going to buy everything, she told me, very seriously…
… “oh finally I want to be a Winx Lady”.
I bit the bullet, studied the Winx characters (there are several), found one that could be easy to reproduce (Flora), draw quickly a sketch, requested her opinion and the answer fell : “no I don’t want her, I want to be BLOOM”.
As the back is totally open on the pattern, I modified it to be more covering. A muslin of the bodice allowed me to get the best fit as possible : we scooped armholes, played with the lycra bands which finish them to prevent any yawning and chose a back cut into 2 parts.
For the princess gloves, I found this great DIY : easy and helpful, love it !
The lycra fabric comes from E-tissus : I had initially opted for the sequined lycra, I’ve changed my mind while my order was ready for shipment…the team modified it whitout charging me anything, and then sent me a very nice email. Honestly, I was blown away.
