Simplicity 8199: Halloween 2017 - Link

This Halloween I dressed up as Link from the Legend of Zelda - my favorite Nintendo character.  I made Simplicity 8199, view B. 

Although the costume looks complicated, it was surprisingly easy to make and I enjoyed working with the bias tape to cover raw edges.  I also inserted eyelets for the first time.  I had to watch a YouTube video to help me figure out how to do it, because the instructions on the package are in German, but once I got the hang of it, it was actually pretty easy to do and I was happy to have learned a new technique.

I'm also posting a picture of the pumpkin that I carved.  Happy Halloween!


  1. hi! It looks very nice! What type of fabric did you used?

    1. Hi Gaby, I just noticed your comment, sorry for the delayed response. The fabric was just cotton broadcloth - nothing fancy. This was probably one of my favourite projects ever in terms of the outcome. Hope this helped!
