Halloween Costume 2012!
Rule 1- Ignore the strange grimace on my face. :)
Now that that’s out of the way!
I actually gave myself time to sew this one, usually I wait until about 3 hours before it’s time to pass out candy to come up with a costume. As a person with the inability (read as patience) to grow my hair long, it was really fun to wear this long blonde wig!
Also introducing Mimi the cat as Dinah!
The top is McCall’s 6649, slightly modified with the super puffy sleeves. The skirt, apron, and petticoat are all self drafted! I had a lot of fun sewing this:)
4 weekly drawings, including a Grand Prize valued at more than $4,000!
