About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Halloween Costume #1



Costume #1 finished from vintage Simplicity 7162, modified to wear to school. I made the top from the pattern, stopping at the waist. I then made her TNT pants, adding about 2" on each side seam and elasticating the ankle for ruffles. I couldn't see her going to the bathroom in a one piece. I substituted those cute flower buttons for the pompons.
Hayley's is up next.

So cute! My mom made me a clown costume like that with the neck ruff one year, I loved it!
