From the back
Fairy wings from the front
These wings are so easy. I’m so glad that I followed my gut instinct after reading Clemmie’s review. This really is a great book. It’s got all kinds of ideas for parties and costumes, and they are really easy to do, too!
Pattern Review of the Fairy Wings Pattern Description: Very simple fairy wings.
Pattern Sizing: One kid size, but it would be very easy to alter this for an adult or baby.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn’t really follow the instructions. However, I do remember them telling you to trace the pattern piece.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
LIKE: It’s so easy.
DISLIKE: It didn’t call for any interfacing, and the sheer fabric we used was not strong enough when Pulgito grabbed it. It ripped away from the scunchies that held it to DD’s wrists. I think that would be frustrating for a non coutiere.
Fabric Used: Some sheer from Joann’s.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I added interfacing at the snap (before Pulgito attacked) and where the scunchies attach at the wrists.
The pattern called for velcro straps at the wrists, and I changed that to the scunchies. It’s cleaner and easier for the kids.
I used snaps to attach it to the costume dress, but for the pictures here, I used a safety pin.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
YES YES YES
I hope to be reviewing other things from this book. Thanks, Clemmie!
Conclusion This is a really, really great book. If you’ve got kids, grandkids, babysit, or do daycare, this book is just wonderful.
