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!
