I’m super excited to announce that my first costume pattern is ready for the world! Come meet the Field of Flowers costume for both kids AND adults!
Back in 2008, when my daughter was two years old, my husband had the idea to dress her up for Carnival as a bunch of flowers or some other type of flower costume. So I came up with an extremely simple costume which was just a green rectangle with a slit cut in the center for the head with fleece flowers sewn on. It didn’t seem like quite enough, so I made up a hat and a neck tie with leaves, too.
It wasn’t exactly high class sewing and had a huge amount of technical issues, but we always loved it. Sofia wore it on many costume-wearing occasions and both she and her brother periodically put it on still, even if it’s way too small for both of them.
Ever since I started my pattern shop in 2014 I’d wanted to create a real pattern for this costume, but more finished and with better technique. And because this costume is just so much fun, I made adult sizes, too! Man, I hadn’t worn a costume in years!
