I just love it! You've done a truly impressive job. Great design choices, great fabric choice. You've got my vote! I really want to try some like this when my baby gets a little older.

Very nice! Love the embellishments you added. The faux lace in the back was genius! Your daughter makes a great Merida. Great job!

I think you did a Magnificent Job! Totally a beautiful costume! I can tell by your daughter's beautiful smile that she appreciates all the hard work you put into creating it for her.

Your final version is extremely well done. I really like the alterations you made they make the outfit more authentic looking.

Wow! It looks great, and the velco/zipper closure was ingenious.

Thanks, guys! It was fun to make, and work through how to modify, and what order to do things in. (Basically you put the two dresses together, and join them LAST).

There's plenty of room under it, for warmer clothes. But she has a cloak from previous years that she can wear over it, that is more in keeping with the character/time (it's a fake leatherette outside, lined in fleece, so it's actually quite warm).

Great job! I've made two costumes before and find them very fun to make. Hope your daughter enjoys her new dress :-)

This is great! I am sure she will enjoy it. and it can be trotted out in future years in other incarnations. It lookes like she would even have room for other warmer garments under it for now for Halloween. Well done. Some of that stuff about learning the undergarments need to be voluminous are a real eye opener when you do them, aren't they? It makes you wonder how they endured the lumps and bumps in their clothing! :)

Great job with this costume! Your daughter sounds to be the same size as mine, and I face the same kind of alterations when I make clothes for her.

That is super cool! My kids love Brave. Maybe next year I'll make a Merida costume.
