Halloween Then and Now

Halloween is one of my favorite times of year and though I love to sew, for some reason, I'm not a huge fan of sewing Halloween costumes. So, 2 years ago when my daughter was 2 and my son was only a few weeks old, I looked into his Halloween future and planned a costume for my daughter I could reuse....

She was a Chef-cook! (she asked what a chef was...I said someone who cooks....the 2 year old brain decided she's a chef-cook, and the name stuck)

Here she is in action at my good friend Jane of All Trade's annual Halloween bash.

Aren't they cute!

And here's the boy, 2 years later at the same Halloween bash. The costume is a little less ironed and a little more stained, but it works.

This time around, the girl wanted to be as girly as can be and was one of a handful of princesses at the party. Her costume came out okay....but she likes it and that's all that really matters. I think I'll be finding glitter on my sewing room floor for years to come! You can't tell from the photo, but that pink fabric is covered in glitter.
Happy Halloween.....and happy costume sewing!

  1. I can't believe she was ever that little (and soo cute!). And her little brother is following right in her footsteps (although I think you might not want him to wear the pink glittery dress in two years? just a guess)
