Hodgepodge Halloween

The day after Halloween last year, Taylor decided that she and her friends wanted to dress up like a banana split. This idea continued on up until a month ago (whew, because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to pull this one off). By that time my swap partner from a Halloween swap had already created a fantastic headpiece for her…. so she decided to build off of that. From there, Taylor decided that she wanted a tutu (I purchased one from Sock Dreams along with some awesome socks, but these are the same kind you can find at Halloween stores, just at a more reasonable price) and leggings – but not just any leggings….. stripe capri leggings. Since I didn’t know of anything offhand that met that description, I decided to make a pair using Kwik Sew 3636 and a cute stripe print from Needle Nook.
I made the ‘close fitting’ style of capri leggings, but after sewing them up, I thought they looked big. Thankfully after having Taylor try them on, they fit perfectly (whew) – and she was thrilled with the length. Next up is a Jalie V-neck t-shirt that coordinates with the stripe print.

    I’m interested to see what the whole costume looks like, I think it’ll be really cool. We still have no idea what to dress our son up as, the selection of pre-made costumes leaves a lot to be desired, and I’m cutting it too close to finish a homemade one I think…

    I think it’ll be a kind of fun look – very Katy Perrish. Taylor wants something else to go with everything she’s got, but I’m out of ideas what might work with it…. a boa?
