Halloween was a success this year- although the costume I made for Zella- turned out to be rather difficult to trick-or-treat in:( She was a mermaid after-all, so I attempted to make the bottom look as "tail-like" as possible. I used a pair of old stretch pants, cut the leg seams, sewed them together in the center, tapered them, then attached the ruffle scales- then I sewed up the ends. Even though I left a slit in the back- there was not a whole lot of "range of motion", but considering I was not using a pattern, and really- I'm an amature when it comes to sewing....I think it was okay!
Gorgeous right? The ones I will tackle next year will be something like one of these:
Moses wore one of the clown costumes my mother had sewn for Em and I when were tiny. (They both wore them last year)- they are very cute! He was happiest while eating the candy- the picture below is him scavenging the counter for any pieces within reach:)
Today was beautiful. Sunny, a little chilly, leaves everywhere- the perfect fall day!
