Quick Halloween Costumes
Shannon, our Craft and Notions Buyer, and I have created Back of the Envelope instructions for an easy sheer skirt you can make for yourself, or your little girl, for Halloween or dress-up. The perfect fabrics for this skirt are those that will not ravel when cut like tulle or nylon tricot. We also chose to use a single layer of 108'' wide tricot or a double layer of 108'' wide tulle. There are lots of options for costumes with this adjustable pattern including:
Sheer Black - Cat, Black Swan Ballerina, Witch
Sheer White - Ghost, White Cat
Sheer Red - Devil, Super Heroine
Sheer Pink - Ballerina, Piggie
We also have some really quick, really cute costumes on a stick! We have patterns for mustaches on a stick from Lisa Welge, and lips, glasses and masks on a stick from our in-house designer, Valerie. We cut the templates from Polyester felt fabric squares. I got the sicks at my local craft store, and hot glued the felt cutouts to the stick.
We hope you enjoy your spooky holidays and your dress-up time with these easy, adorable projects!
