Yesterday we we able to go to the Texas Renaissance Festival. We try to go every year, and it is definitely one of the things we will miss about living in Texas. This is the first year that I have made all of our costumes.
McCalls 6141, altered for maternity. It's still is a great fit at 33 weeks!
McCalls 5500 on top and Burda 9671 on the bottom. The applique is a dragon, roughly based on an online coloring page. He got tons of compliments on his cool dragon! The pants get worn constantly. They fit him well and he likes them. The tunic is a little big, but he's comfortable in it.
McCalls 4530 on top, and Simplicity 4378 on bottom. The pants are a TNT for him. He loves his tunic, and I am so happy to have finally managed a Ren Fest outfit for him that is comfortable and looks good.
Butterick 4910. She loves it, and passers-by universally found her adorable.
We had a great time at the Faire! We watched belly dancers, jousters and sword fights, enjoyed all of the interesting costumes, and ate way too much faire food. But the coolest part?
