This year Sophie made up her mind that she wanted to be Snow White for Halloween. Last year she was Cinderella in a store bought costume, with a few mommy made extras. This year I was determined to make her costume myself and I am really pleased with how is turned out!
I used the Snow White by Simplicity ( pattern 2817) to make the dress. It was probably one of the more complicated dresses that I have made so far. The bodice is lined, there are darts in the front and back and a lapped back zipper. It was nice to try out these new skills on a costume and not something crucial like a flower girl dress.
For the sleeves I used a great tutorial by Jessica at CINO. They took a little more time, but I love them so much, they made the dress so adorable!
My sweet little guy also had a made by mommy costume this year. He was a pirate, but got a little grumpy around picture time and ended up home with me instead of out trick-or-treating. In my head I could hear Jerry Seinfeld saying, "I don't wanna be a pirate" all night as he moped!
