The Wendybird...

Peter Pan has got to be my favorite story of all time.  Of.  All.  Time.  If I ever go mad and deiced to spawn I want to start a tradition with my children including Peter Pan.  I love the character Wendy.  I love the fact that she's maternal yet has no desire to grow up.  In that sense I can relate.  For a while I've wanted to make her costume from Disney's Peter Pan because it could be easily recognized out and about on Halloween.  I bought a couple patterns some time ago.  I decided on one that was perfect and it wasn't even a nightgown pattern!

I used Simplicity 4055 and I combined aspects of both dresses to make Wendy's nightgown.

I used a light blue flannel because hello it's supposed to be a nightgown!

The pattern is quite simple.  The only problem I had was the ribbon.  It wouldn't stay in place so close to the girls.  In the end I just sewed it on the front.

I think I did pretty good with this one.  In fact I won third in a costume contest.  Not bad if I do say so myself.  :)

  1. I love your Wendy costume! I want one just like it. Do you ever sew orders for others? Could you make that pattern work for a LARGE bosom?
