Boy, I showed her! ;-) She is one happy girl. She is Wonder Woman by the way. Some folks seem a little confused by this and I can only guess it's because she's quite a bit more clothed than the real Wonder Woman (no star-studded undies for my 6 year old). She's also missing the magic lasso which Maggie made very clear she did not need.
I used Made By Rae's Flashback Skinny Tee pattern for the shirt. Such a great pattern and so fast and easy. The shirt is a very stretchy, sparkly red knit, like dance fabric. I cut the emblem out of some shiny gold fabric (maybe crepe?) and drew the black line details with a Sharpie.
I kind of drafted the skirt pattern myself (once again, should've used a pattern), and it's not perfect, but totally acceptable for Halloween. I had a LOT of layers of tulle and must've lined them all up and basted them together three times...I still kept loosing layers....ugh. It has a flat front waistband and a wide elastic on the back. I also sprayed the skirt with some gold glitter spray I happen to have, so it's super sparkly.
I totally just winged it on the crown and the arm cuffs - they're my favorite pieces. She looks too sweet to be such a tough chick, don't you think?
So, apparently, it's a superhero year in our house. Joe is going as Ironman. Thank goodness we found that one in his size in the store. Whew!
I definitely don't love Halloween sewing, but I can't help but think that there are only so many years that my kiddos will want to dress up. So, I'm so glad I took the time to make her something she loves. Now to take these kiddos out on the town so I can raid their candy bags!
