Halloween 2013 Butterfly Girl and Totoro Costumes
October 29, 2013 By 5 Comments
Craftiness is not Optional's Raglan Tee tutorial but I applied it to a pattern and made long sleeves. For the skirt I just did a big rectangle with an elastic casing, sewing pieces of an awesome rose fabric and great lime satin together to make the panels. Then for the pants I used Me Sew Crazy's Riding Pants pattern. For the inset I just pieced together some fabric before I cut the piece out and then I zig zaged around the edge instead of doing a straight stitch. For some reason it took me a long time to figure out out how to do L's Totoro outfit. I finally ended up making a raglan dress. The fabric was this fun apparel fabric that was both soft but kind of held it's shape so it made for a nice big tummy when on. For her leggings I used Peek-a-boo pattern's quick lollipop leggings pattern. And I tweaked McCalls's 5253 hat pattern to make her head.
