For Halloween my daughters wanted to be witches. I figured I could sew them myself, save money and make them multipurpose and durable!

My daughters wearing them on Halloween:


I chose black for the base and wanted to second color to be something that could be used for ren faire and our Midsummer faerie event. I thought red crushed velvet would be my best bet.



I am still new to sewing, so it was an interesting project to undertake.

But the girls loved them and they got a bunch of compliments. I also have black and red faerie wings too, but they really wanted to be witches. So they ended up being a 4-in-1 costumes! (Yay!)

How wonderful that they are so convertible costumes, that really is a marvellous idea.
