Here’s my Halloween costume for this year. I used a Simplicity pattern 4940, and a free, downloadable pattern from www.fleecefun.com for the cape. As for the crown, that is my own creation!
This is my first time branching out from cotton. Thank goodness for my serger, which I used on most of this project! The pattern was pretty simple to follow, though I would recommend going a size smaller for the neckline and collar. I needed to use double sided garment tape to keep the dress from sliding down. Also, unless you’re using velvet, the pattern calls for way more fabric than needed. I have tons left over.
