Peter Pan – Wendy Costume

I have a daughter who is going to be Tinker Bell for Halloween. So, I thought we could have a family theme around Peter Pan. I’ll be Wendy and my son will be the Crocodile. This Wendy costume was oh-so-simple and inexpensive. Especially when I found the fabric in the bargain bin. Try and get a heavy drappey type fabric, I like the crapes or a thin jersey. This dress is modifying a ballet pattern – Simplicity 5138 Style A. Modifying the shoulder (taking out the spaghetti strap) and adding a puffy sleeve with elastic which is included in the pattern. I did modify the neckline. There is NO zipper or buttons. Elastic at the empire, with lining at the bust. Add a bit of Pixie Dust, think happy thoughts and you’re off!

if you are interested in me creating one for you please e-mail me for details. or my Etsy Shop listing. If you are interested in this for children you can view a similar style and tutorial here.

  • Okay, so this might be weird but are you able to make another one of these? I am looking for a Wendy costume for my little man’s 1st birthday in early March. I am having such a hard time finding one that isn’t over priced. Or maybe you would want to sell this one? 🙂 Just thought I’d ask!!


  • Thanks for asking, anyone is always welcome to e-mail their questions. I would love to talk to anyone interested in me recreating any of my costumes. I hope that anyone who uses my costume ideas and suggestions, e-mails me pictures of their finished work. I’d love to see them. We could put them up in a group of Inspired work. What do you think?

    Okay so my sweet 16 is in two weeks and it’s Peter Pan themed. I’m going as Wendy and I can’t find a single light blue dress. Can I use this pattern? Email:
