I made some good progress on Vee's costume. For those of you that don't remember, here is a reference photo:

In true "me" fashion, I wanted this to be comfortable for daily wear (since I pretty much let my kids wear their costumes whenever they want), so I went with recycled t-shirts. Crazy, but knit is so easy to work with, and comfortable, and cheap, that I seem to lean towards that for my kiddos' costumes.

What the skirt started out as:

The process was so simple to make the skirt that I didn't really bother to take progress photos. I turned the t-shirt into four gores and sewed them together, then stuck them onto a 2 inch elastic waistband. Finished skirt:

For the shirt, I pulled out one of my old patterns from a few years ago. I wanted raglan style sleeves with the peasant blouse style top, so this is the shirt pattern I modified:

Here is what the pattern looked like after I made my modifications:

I went ahead and used some more recycled t-shirts. Can't beat $0.50. Heh. Yellow part of the shirt:

And the white part of the shirt:

I found some elastic glitter ribbon for basically $1/yard. I love this stuff because it's washable and doesn't shed. I had a small, much more expensive piece of glitter ribbon that I had put on her Elsa dress from three(?) years ago and it's still shiny. So... glitter down the front:

And glitter on the scallops:

Then I found a piece of plastic and cut that in a cirlce, used some t-shirt scraps and make the bow for the shirt:

And here she is, basics done:

I still need to do all the accessories; however, I am taking a break from Vee's costume to work on Morgan's Link so that they'll both have at the very least the basic costume for my church Trunk or Treat. After I finish Morgan's basics, I'm going to work on both of their wigs. I'm leaning toward fleece....

Heh. Thanks. I think so, too. She is just so full of personality. I love it when she hams it up for the camera. :)
