For Halloween this year Julia made an amazing Merida costume! Merida is the main character from the Pixar movie Brave, and Julia just couldn’t resit portraying her this Halloween.
Julia used our silk cotton sateen in slate for the body of the dress and the silk cotton sateen in gold for the trim and the sash! The dress pattern is by Mccalls, pattern number M5499. Julia said the pattern was easy to follow and she really liked the fact that she didn’t need to add a zipper! The only adjustment she had to make to the pattern was making the neckline straight across. She even added an embroidered detail to the end of the waist tie!
