Getting into the groove

The first few times I make a costume, it's definitely an experiment. I'm trying out fabrics, making a pattern, and figuring out just what people are interested in having.
This dress is the same fabric and color as the above dress, my camera and flash just made it look different.
This client liked the "stripe" around the bottom, but wanted it in a darker color instead of lighter color. It stands out much better in person.
The Medieval Princess will be $325 in the teal fabric. With the "stripe" around the bottom added in either the lighter or darker color it will be $360. With both the "stripe around the bottom and the bulls eye on the sleeve it will be $375. It can accommodate a slightly full a-line slip which is not included but can be added for $30.

Halloween for Jack-Jack

I decided Jack-Jack is going to Halloween as a My Little Pony. They were a favorite of mine when I was little and my girls love them now. I chose one of the newer characters, Twilight Sparkle.

Now that all my girls are taken care of it's back to work big time!

Halloween Costumes

I don't get too many requests for Halloween costumes, my prices aren't wear it once friendly and that's ok. I do get requests from my kids and one niece every year, it's usually fun what they throw at me to make. My niece found a picture online she loved and I made my own version of Wonder Woman.
My 11yr old graciously tried it on, she's not quite the same size as her cousin but she's close enough.
My 8 yr old discovered Sailor Moon, and chose Sailor Uranus as her costume.
We're going to go boot and glove shopping this weekend to complete her look!
I ended up with a cancellation this week which gave me time to make these. I'm also planning on finishing my other projects in the works early too!
