Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Here's Emma Jayne as Witch number two. Yes, this is the second time she's been a Witch (http://paigehill.blogspot.com/2008/03/emma-jaynes-halloween-costumes_02.html#links). Not the same costume, mind you. But a Witch non the less. I REALLY wanted her to be Cinderella. Had the perfect pattern all ready to go. When I showed it to her, she said "No Mom, I really want to be a Witch". "But Emma", I begged, "Wouldn't you RATHER be a princess?". She wouldn't budge, and no amount of cajoling was going to change her mind. Luckily, my friend Patty Young of www.modkiddesigns.com sent me a really cute pattern that I was excited to try. I also had a bunch of fabric left over from the first Witch, so I set to work on Witch #2. Patty's pattern (called Emma, appropriately enough!), was one of the easiest patterns I have ever used. The directions were very easy to follow, and the sizing was spot on. The pattern even included a little purse because, let's face it, every little girl needs a matching purse! Thanks Patty for making my second little Witch costume easy as pie and cute as a button:).

ETA: Forgot to mention that after I had all of the pieces cut out, Emma marched up to my sewing room and announced "I think I want to be a Princess now". Not this time little missy:). I pulled out the picture of the pattern and told her "Look, it's a Princess WITCH"....."Oh. Ok Mom". A "Princess" Witch it was....

  2. What a doll! Love it!

    You left a comment over on my blog about pattern testing but I couldn't find your email. I am good on testers for this one but I have some more stuff coming up if you want to test for that.

    If you want one of these Hazel Hipster patterns to giveaway on your blog - I'd be glad to send one off to you. Thanks Paige.

    Best,
    Trish

  3. She is absolutely adorable in every way. Your cute costume for her only adds to her natural cuteness. Good job Paige!
