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....

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:).
