Okay so to make a short story long  Roll Eyes we are going to the Peter Pan Treasure Hunt in Kensington Gardens in London this weekend and I thought it would be cute for my little girl to dress up. So I made this outfit but Im not sure about it. I want your guys' opinions, do you think its boring? I wanted it to be true to the character, but now Im afraid its kinda plain. Her hair will be done up in a bun with a side part and she'll be wearing black ballet flats, (because she wont let me paint them green! lol) Oh and Im going to put jingle bells on her somewhere so she makes the Tinkerbell sound too. What do you think?

It is a super cute costume! You don't want to over complicate it because its a simple outfit to begin with.

I'll start by saying it looks adorable! If it were me, though, I would:
1. Replace the white straps with flesh colored ones.
2. I would also make the waist go in just a touch more.

*And don't forget the Pom Poms on her shoes!!

Im so jealous of your outing, sounds like a blast!!

I think it is fantastic the way it is!  If she is going to be doing a lot of running around and such, it's waaaay better for the outfit to a bit more simple so she has room to move and doesn't feel restricted!

I think the white stripes are fine because flesh coulured wouldn't look so good at the back

I think it is adorable, but a little glitter or pixie dust, wouldn't hurt.   Grin

Thanks for your replies guys! Yes I forgot to mention the glitter, she'll be all kinds of glittery! Also if any of you are around London this weekend you should go to the Treasure Hunt. All the proceeds go to the Children's Hospital so it's a great cause!

Sounds like a fun event!

I like the simplicity of it. It fits the part without being OTT. If she won't let you paint the ballet pumps, then tacking or clipping on a green pom pom will be fun and just help to tie it together.

what about adding tiny little bells to the end of eack point on the skirt? or would that be too jingly?

she looks happy and comfortable in it though. Is there anyway you could make a little white of green cardi in a matching fabirc so that if it gets chilly she can keep warm and still be Tinkerbell?


glitter! lots of glitter. A girl can never be too sparkly.

My first reaction to seeing this post, before I'd even read your message, was that the outfit was just perfect. Your daughter looks happy and comfortable in it, and I love the wings. I wouldn't change a thing Smiley

Adorable! The costume and the cute model!  Grin

Personally, I think the idea of little bells at each point on the dress would be cute! And Jingly. I remember when I was little, I loved to wear anything jingly. Made walking around so much fun.

And yes, glitter!!

Anyways, great job!

Yeah I totally support this. I wouldn't over do the glitter though. As I remember from my childhood, dance costumes with tons of glitter on them were the most uncomfortable thing to dance in EVER!

Like someone else said, add lots of glitter! Otherwise, it's adorable! If I ever travel to London, I want it to be during a time I can go to this. I ADORE the story of Peter Pan and am decorating my kid's room in a fantasy/Neverland theme. Wish I could be there! Have fun, and your daughter is gonna look adorable!

oh NOES how cute! Cheesy
I love the idear,even if I have to be true,at the moment Ive seen a lot of people make a tinkerbell costume(but til now ive never seen a cute child beeing a tinkerbell  Wink )
I would give her small ballerina shoes in green(like Tinkerbell has)with big,white balls on the top  Smiley
If you havent a idear for the bells,maybe you can give her small anklets?
Im sure she will rock on the event,i mean shes SUPER cute!  Cheesy

The only thing I might add is a maybe a sash of some glittery fabric. It would be a way of bringing in the waist without having to take the sewing machine out again.

Your daughter is beautiful! Smiley
