I love this time of year. The kids get so excited about there costumes, it's the start of the holiday season and a nice time to stay home and cuddle up.
I got the chance to make lots of fun Halloween costumes this year which believe it or not is not something I normally do. I'm usually a buy it from the store just like everyone else kinda girl. But my girls feel like it's extra special if it's homemade & I know that is not something they will always appreciate.
I showed you Kambrias costume here. She wanted to be sleeping beauty AKA princess Aurora. We already had a dress up Aurora dress but it needed some serious TLC so I fixed it up & this is the result you can read more about that here.
Deja wanted to be Merida from the movie Brave. For the most part I used this pattern.
However she wanted long sleeves and the Meridas dress has gold accents along the top sleeves and bottom along with a gold belt.
So, I just added some gold sequined ribbon to the sleeves, top, and as the belt. For the bottom I just added gold fabric.
