I totally got the idea of the dress from Alpha Mom and her post for Last Minute Kids Owl Costume. The only thing I did different is I did now sew ours, I used fabric glue and I used a women’s fitted t-shirt. I only used the t-shirt because I wanted the dress part to be longer, and it goes down to her knees which I am happy with. Then I also added real dyed feathers to the dress also.
Because I used a women’s t-shirt, the short sleeves are visible. Since I will be putting my daughter in a turtle neck and tights it is not really noticeable. However if it is warmer where you are then you could always cut the sleeves off and the seam will just be hidden by the fabric feathers.
Black T-shirt (we used a Fitted women’s size Medium)
2 Yards of Blue Fabric (keep in mind I used this for the Wings too)
2 Yards of Pink Fabric (keep in mind I used this for the Wings too)
2 Yards of Green Fabric (keep in mind I used this for the Wings too)
1pkg of Blue, Pink, and Green Feathers (optional)
Fabric Glue (I used Beacon Fabri-Tac)
