DIY Vanellope von Schweetz

Jordan (5 of 14)

The Made for Mermaids Jordan pattern was in testing right around the time my kids were watching Wreck It Ralph 2 for the first time. My daughter was immediately smitten with Vanellope von Schweetz, and asked if I could make her a costume. I had just enough scraps of teal and hot pink, and some metallicy-sequin material, to make it work.

She was a little bummed I didn’t have real candy for her to stick in her hair, but the confetti was good enough 😉

If I had planned this earlier, I would have ordered more vinyl or found striped fabric to use for her leggings, but since this was a last minute costume, we made do! I sewed long strips of fabric into one large piece, and then cut my legging pieces out.

We had so much fun dressing up the Jordan pattern to make this “sweet” outfit. It comes in adult sizes, too, so be sure to scoop up patterns for the whole fam. Happy sewing!

Thank you for stopping by! I'm the mama behind em and ellie, formerly mama & little e. Although I've been a crafty sewist for years, I formally started my DIY adventure in July 2013, after a lot of prompting from Mr. Mama, and two random unrelated orders for baby gifts from friends. Shortly after the first two orders, I launched an etsy shop. On top of running my handmade boutique, I love to spend time repurposing random junk, making ridiculous Halloween costumes out of cardboard, decorating (and re-decorating) our home on a budget, taking pictures of my kids, and making elaborate meal plans that nobody actually follows. I also own an obscene amount of throw pillows.
