How Do You Create A Wendy Darling Costume?

Gina Adams

Pete Pan and WendyWendy Darling from Peter Pan has many dress styles from the musicals and movies, but one of the most well-known is the light blue nightgown worn by Wendy in Disney’s classic Peter Pan.

You’ll need 4 basic parts:

  • Regency-style light blue dress with rounded shoulders
  • 3-inch wide blue ribbon for hair
  • 1-inch wide blue ribbon for waist
  • Black or navy blue slippers (ballet slippers work well)

The regency-style light blue dress should be at least ankle-length, but ideally covering the ankles. A basic dress patern will work, as long as it includes the similar rounded puffy sleeves to Wendy’s nightgown.

The 3-inch wide blue ribbon should be tied in a large bow, but should not have any long tails showing. Wendy’s bow is tight and doesn’t have long flowing tails, but rather just an inch showing.

The 1-inch wide blue ribbon should be a slightly darker color than the dress and ideally matche the hair ribbon color. It should be wide enough to tie just under the chest, per regency style. The bow in back should be tied and include tails that fall not quite to the waist.

The slippers simply need to be close-toed and dark blue or black. They should ideally be cloth and look like something one might wear when getting out of bed, but still be feminine and dainty like the ones worn by Wendy.

You’re sure to make Tinkerbell jealous!


If you want to be darling this Halloween, you can be, literally. Dress as Wendy Darling, the girl who makes Tinkerbell jealous in Disney’s animated classic “Peter Pan.” Achieve the adorable look with a flowing dress and a few simple accessories. Wear a long sky-blue dress with a full skirt and short puffed sleeves. For contrast, add a bit of royal blue piping around the neck and sleeves. Add a wide royal-blue ribbon around the waist and tie it in a large, eye-catching bow. Choose dark blue or black ballet flats for shoes. Find light blue tights to match the color of the dress, or wear natural-colored ones. Pull your hair back into a ponytail and tie it with big bow created with royal blue ribbon. Curl your hair into bouncy ringlets. Part your bangs in the middle and curl them toward your face. If your hair isn’t dark brown or long enough to tie back, consider getting a wig to go with the costume. Powder your skin with a light shade to obtain a porcelain complexion. Complete the look by
