Halloween: Simple Skirts and Shirt

Halloween is all about costumes and dressing up, but a little girls need day-to-day wear1  The Lazy Day Skirt free pattern came in very handy helping me make a couple of simple everyday wear Halloween skirts.

My friend Kim came over to learn how to make this orange one for her daughter,

and I made this one is for Grace.

The Lazy Day Skirt is so great because it is a simple pattern that can be embellished.  With these two skirts we added coordinating fabric to the main fabric as well as some rick rack.  Who doesn't love rick rack?

Of course Grace's skirt needed a matching shirt, and I thought a big candy corn would be sweet.  This shirt was done in less than 1/2 hour from start to finish.  I used my candy corn template and some felt.  It was easy and quick.  

And I think it will go nicely with Grace's new Halloween Skirt.  I can't wait for her to see her new shirt in the morning!  I'm am slightly nervous that she won't think her new shirt is fancy enough.  Maybe we'll have a conversation while eating real candy corn to help convince her that it is indeed sweet and fancy enough.

For being your least favorite holiday, you sure are doing a great job of making it festive. Cute outfit for Grace. I'm anxious to hear if it passed the "fancy" test.

I am anxiously waiting to see what you make for George! If I were sewing along with you this week I'd be making some sort of spider shirt for the little guy. My poor kid has to deal with a Halloween shirt from Gymboree :) instead of a cute homemade one.

I love Grace's skirt and shirt. I'll bet she LOVED it too!
