Well, back to the costumes. But this is the last one - really! Myra's Red Riding Hood dress is sweet, but without the hood (which she won't wear), really isn't very much like a costume, and really isn't very Renaissance-y, so I decided to make her a princess dress for the Ren Faire.
Butterick 4910, and the belt (?) is from Simplicity 2561. The Simplicity pattern got a lot of use last Halloween when I dressed a pirate band. It's a fun costume pattern with lots of different options. I suspect that I will use it again. Butterick 4910 has been in the stash for a while. It is a simple peasant style top and dress as well as shorts and pants. Butterick claims that it is not to be used for sleepwear, although the line drawing on the pattern shows a bunch of cute girls with their blankies all ready for bed... Anyway, it has very simple lines and was a quick sew.
Joy's cute medieval dress. It is just elastic shirring on the upper arms.
At least now we are all ready for the Ren Faire! And just in time - we go next weekend!!! More pictures then...
