I was even able to get him out of character for this one…do zombies ever smile?
I made Penny’s dress from a lightweight knit fabric so it has a nice drape and some stretch to it. I patterned it after a peasant dress but extended the sleeves into bell sleeves for that perfect witch look. I added a black cord for a witch-y belt and I bought her tights a Jo-Anns for 60% off. PS. they have lots of fun colors!
I found the hat and broomstick at Target for a few bucks a piece, you can’t beat such inexpensive finishing touches!
Ellie wanted to be a kitty cat, so sweet! All she wants to do is say “meow, meow” which actually sounds a lot more like “mow, mow” when she says it.
She picked out this kitty (cougar-y?) fleece fabric all by herself, it is so dang soft! And it’s nice and thin and a dream to sew with.
I used Simplicity Pattern 1584 to make the dress except I added a small velcro closure on the back and omitted the black fuzzy collar as I figured that would annoy her after awhile.
I have to laugh at my attempt at group shots…4 kids in one frame…it’s tough stuff, especially with a 16 month old who has no desire to stand still!
I hope you enjoyed this year’s Halloween costumes!
Are you done, getting close, or just buying at the store this year?
