I know this flies in the face of much of the sewing community but I don't love making Halloween costumes. I'd so much rather make actual clothes any day of the week and with my sewing time somehow dwindling these days my feelings regarding this have only gotten stronger. I did end up making one costume this year though. Emily decided she wanted to be a kitty and all it took was a google search for me to realize that any kitty costume I was going to be willing to put my daughter in would have to be made by me.
2885 uncut in my stash. My mom and I are not sure which one of us is responsible for this copy but we do know that she made it twice previously. Once for my and once for my brother. This was a new uncut copy though so who knows where it came from. I made her a small bc that was the smallest size on the piece I opened first. The xs probably would have been better but oh well. I didn't make the head piece or tail since we found the ears, nose, tail, and bow tie combo kit on sale for 5 dollars. Emily picked the lovely pink and black fabric. Its even better in person bc it is soft and has shiny dots all over.
So there you have it another year down. They are already planning for next year but I won't be taking anyone seriously until about October 1st. With any luck they will both want something that can be purchased or maybe not this one was pretty fun to make.
