Halloween fun

Halloween is right around the corner, treats are ready for the tricksters that is if we get any this year. I do so miss the fun I had when my son was young, making his costumes and I would dress as well. We didn't go out and buy costumes we made them.  That tradition has carried over to the grown kids and grand kids as well... Here are some costumes from Halloweens past.

Mel as a Southern Belle
I made this hoop skirt Civil War Era Dress for Mel to wear to work as they celebrated Halloween

This is our beautiful grand daughter in her Princess Belle Dress,
 I made the same pattern in pink for her sister, gold for her cousin and a family friend.

This cute pair are a pirate and a princess, at least that is what they wanted to be and that is what their mother told them the costume was when she made them..   I think they are the best Raggedy Ann and Andy ever.  Their Mother did a great job on their costumes even if it isn't your standard Pirate and Princess

Of course our little Tink had to get dressed for her holiday fun, she is Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz
Happy Halloween
