dressing up costumes

Spooky times ahead

Is anyone making any costumes for Halloween? My 11 year old wants to dress up as a scary clown!
Here he is in his new mask & wig – £1 each from the pound shop.

Definitely scary!!
I’ve bought some black poly satin with various coloured stars on and some luminous green and purple to make ruffles around the neck.
He’s so a bit excited, even helped me cut out.
I’ve downloaded a pattern from lekala of a ladies jumpsuit:


I’m going to omit the buttons and add a zip at the front. I’ve also omitted the pockets.
I’m going to add elastic to the arm cuffs and leg bottoms, and a ruffle round the neck. Oh, and hopefully I’ll have enough fabric left to make him a goody bag to take trick or treating.
Hopefully I’ll get it finished off on my break at work tonight. ‘Have sewing machine will travel’ ….that’s my motto!

I sew and play golf. I blog about my sewing as I don't think you'd want to read about my golf. It's bad enough watching it on telly! Contact me via email - Thimbers.blog@gmail.com


    • Finished! Yippee!
      I’ve had a quiet night at work so managed to complete it and make a bag for him too. I’ve just gotten home and Harrison’s still asleep 💤💤💤💤💤💤. I want to wake him up!
      Will post pix later, can’t wait to see him in it.
