The elf costume was pretty easy this year. In years past WD has chosen costumes that made him uncomfortably hot. Dwarf, Gandalf, Gandalf again, Radagast (apparently never blogged). This year I encouraged him to choose something cooler.
I made the sleeveless tunic from a linen-look fabric and view C from Simplicity 1552
And pajama pants out of a green jersey knit. I bet he was one of the most comfortable people at the faire.
Of course, as with most projects nothing was perfectly easy. I bought the linen before deciding on a pattern (I know, I know). So then I obviously didn't have enough. Went to the store, matched my sample piece and after washing discovered they were actually not the same. Fortunately I had more than enough of the second fabric. I was able to use one piece that I had already cut out, as the facing. But I now have one piece already cut for the tunic. Back into the stash, just in a funny shape.
