Hi guys it's Abby we're back again today with another Halloween caution this is a really exciting one.
Because Disney is with my favorite things to do costumes up ever ever. So we are doing princess Moana we kind of recreated it very good a princess we're kind of making this I don't actually you know what I don't know we're doing Moana we're doing Moana also what we have your attention we would love it, if you guys comment. Because that I just gave you a thumbs up comment do that one too. But yeah we do costumes DIYs all year round we're always here for you so, if you like any of that stuff give us a comment and then we'll see you here we're often alright let's get into how we did I'm Alana we're gonna start with mallanna's top Birgit op we bought 1 meter of this linen orange peach fabric we cut out a rectangle that is 36 inches by 18 inches you'll want to make this longer, if you have a larger bust the ad on the scallops dot at points one-and-a-half inches along to help you create an even pattern cut out the scout's by cutting up to one dot and then down to the other until you cut all the way across so, when you have the size we're gonna do something a little funky here you want to ham up three-quarters of the way and then we're going to be flipping it over.

So you need to switch your hem to be on the other side now. So that we have our fabric double layered the hems look good on both sides for the scallops we opted to simply sew beside the edge to keep it from fraying instead of folding and hemming. Because it's a lot easier, and we don't need this top to hold up forever now that that's all done it's time to add on our custom print start with some freezer paper and cut out ten little star birds we have a free template for these on our website linked below to learn more about using freezer paper as a stencil you should definitely click this post here and watch it once they're all ironed on add a strip of tape below above and through the middle using some dark brownish red paint paint over the stencil next we added some vertical and horizontal lines as well as some flowers made of lines take a look at the reference photo we'd link below to help you out with this to add on the shelf trim we picked up the shell necklace from the thrift store we cut it up into smaller bits and then glued them in a line along the top fold a bit of the fabric so moving on to the skirt the bottom layer of the skirt is essentially just a grass skirt. So we're going to stop with the top layer we're using a meter of this canvas like material fold over the top about 8 inches and then hem the entire piece so like the top you're going to need to do the hem in two different ways so, when it is folded over from the front all you see is a nice clean hem.
But really it's folded the hem one way and then, when its flipped over you kind of switch the hem you got it where the trim we picked up this old-fashioned crocheted table runner that had a similar edge to moaña skirt we cut the trim off and then glued it on to the edges of the skirt cut out triangles from a lace like fabric, if you can't find something like this Chadd on the yellow flowers we drew out a template which we linked on our blog and then cut that out of foam to use as a stencil using some yellow pea paint over the stencil all the way across the fabric she also has a stash belt that we made out of our extra fabric approximately 12 inches by 40 inches hem the entire thing and then paint on some matching dots lines and flowers like we did for the top now that all your skir pieces are complete you're going to start by putting on your grass skirt followed by the white top layer and then you can tie on the sash for our necklace we were lucky enough to find this white pendant at the first store that was similar to the shape we wanted we then used some blue paint to color in 3/4 of it on a curved angle, if you don't have something like this you could easily make it as a ball with the shell detail at the top use a brown marker to draw on some wave details for the cord we use some twine rope and sufficient wires since our pearl beads wouldn't fit on this wine start by knotting two long pieces of touring together with one piece of fishing wire as long as you want your necklace to be make sure the twine is significantly longer than the fishing wire we're creating a braided effect by gathering the wire with one of the twine pieces and tying knots nodding in the same direction will create a staircase effect around the twine periodically down the necklace we're stringing a pearl onto the wire and then continuing the knots around it we added four probes and then our blue and white charm continue your knots and slip on the last four pearls and your necklace is finished replicate her super thick hair we're using this long brown lace front wig generously given to us by everyday weight Stockholm we love how full and soft it is and we'll link it below for you, if you'd like it as well all right.
