BERNINA Halloween 2011 - Peacock Fairy Ballerina Princess

Added Oct 21, 2011

Pittsburgh, Penn...






This was a concept that evolved. I thought she should be a peacock for Halloween, with a tutu – I was inspired by a promotional picture from our city’s ballet company. So I was trying to sell her on Peacock Ballerina. But dear daughter wanted wings, so we moved on to Peacock Fairy Ballerina. Then Big Sister added her opinion that there should be a crown. So the costume became Peacock Fairy Ballerina Princess.
It is basically an adaptation of McCalls 4887. Except that I added long sleeves, and fully lined the entire coat. I also changed the tutu – I made a satin waistband with a layered tutu, more like what I had seen helping out in the costume department for a children’s ballet company. I made the wings from my own design, using wire hangers. I took a plain rhinestone crown and added colorful beads and tulle. My older daughter made earrings from the leftover beads.

Material Notes

Coat – Brocade lined with silk habotai; silver lace trim
Underdress – Satin
Wings – Wire hangers; tights; peacock feathers

    Your daughter will be the prettiest little girl on Halloween night and her outfit is by far the nicest on this site.
