I always make my daughter’s costume for Halloween. It’s always been one of my favorite traditions. She finally pick something besides a fair this year. It was fun to make, even though the silver trim was a bit fussy. It asked for grommets for the ties holes on the over coat, but I made button holes instead, much easier. The inside of the sleeve I used the same fabric as the under dress. I added the netting to make the dress a bit more puffy. My family was really impressed. (Photos always get croped. :s)
