I thought it would be a great idea to make DD1's costume this year. She wanted to be Dorothy, so I bought a pattern and thought, "how hard could a dorothy dress be to make?" and then I started cutting the pattern out. Two hours later, I was done cutting the fabric out. :shock: I couldn't believe how many pieces there were!!! This pattern way exceeded my sewing skill set, but I somehow got through it and LEARNED SO MUCH! I had to put a zipper in... make darts... put a collar in... make poofy sleeves. Man, I think I could do anything now! I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Here are the pics!
Next year DD2 will have a homemade costume. I just didn't have time to do two this year. She's going to be Little Red Riding Hood. I found her the CUTEST costume for... get this... $3.98!
