Halloween Costumes

Have you guys started thinking about Halloween. It is a bit over a month away and I JUST started ordering fabric and what not. I'm not gunna lie the planner in me is kind of freaking out right now. Especially because Hailey wants to be the Queen of Hearts for Halloween. You know from Alice in Wonderland. She graciously said Bellie could be Alice. So the Queen of Hearts not too bad right? NO! I was googling "free patterns" just to get an idea of what I was going to be up against and stumbled upon a post from the Oh SOOOO Talented Kathleen over at Grosgrain from last year.

Hailey wants this costume! She wants it baaad. She even saw the "simple" version of the Queen of Hearts pattern and told me it was too plain! Ha! Such a little fashionista at 4. Goodness gracious! She talks about who is going to be what and has decided for everyone (except me). She has even tried to include her friends to make sure she has the whole Alice in Wonderland movie completely covered! Bailey (the dog) will be the cheshire cat. Bobby has agreed to be the Mad Hatter (not even going to attempt this one, we'll purchase this costume) and I go back and forth between the March Hare and the White Rabbit. Of course a girlie version of either. What do you guys think? March Hare or White Rabbit?

I'll have to make it or find pieces for it. So it might just come down to nothing for Momma but we'll see. Hopefully we can get the whole family in on this one!

Did I mention there will be pettiskirts under both little girls dresses? That is what I'll be starting hopefully this weekend. Because let me tell ya those adorable little skirts are time consuming! I may have a slight case of pettiskirt amnesia as my good friend Tara was reminding me that I swore I'd never make another pettiskirt after I made 2 last year right around this time.

So what are your plans for Halloween?

Love and Hugs,
