Yes, Dorothy. I am so excited. I adore Halloween so when these custom requests came in I was thrilled. The musicmaker is not into Halloween and for some bizarre reason turned down my offer to go look at the pattern book for a costume for him. So far he’s only let me make him a tiger costume and that’s only because he had one when he was a wee one and thought it would be funny. I’m just waiting for the day that I have my own munchins to dress up (or that my nieces live close enough and are old enough to request their own Halloween costumes). I want to make my own costume but as I’ve been researching for Dorothy I’ve thought that would be a really cute costume for me too. Oh I don’t know, I guess I have time.
I bought 5 costume patterns today and probably at least 20 earlier this year, not that I really use patterns these days, they usually fit insanely poorly and make you do things in really dumb ways, but I like to look at the pieces and ways that they put things together.But the other fun costume I get to make is Pebbles. I so hope the little one that this is going to has red hair. I think that would be so stinking cute.
Oh I love Halloween. There’s just something about a handmade costume. I know some moms don’t have the time or the sewing inclination so I’m so happy to provide them with the means to give their little ones the perfect costume. I’ve had a number of orders for Fancy Nancy dresses for Halloween and I’m hoping to crank out a couple other ready to ship costumes for Thursday’s update so be sure to check in.
