Whew...perhaps at some point I'll actually post about some of those. HA! But for today, I just wanted to brag about my little Lindley Belle...I know, shocking right.
Last night, my sweet little girl transformed into my real life Raggedy Ann doll! I had the MOST fun putting this costume together.
~ The blue dress was an old dress of mine when I was her age.
~ The white "apron" was a dress from the summer. I cut a large piece off the bottom and hemmed it.
~ Then I sewed on the red rick-rack all the way around.
~ I made this red bows with some random ribbon I had at home and attached them.
~ The wig is made out of some super cheapy yarn I got at Hobby Lobby and an old crocheted hat that she never wears. Attaching the yarn to the hat was prob the longest process of all, but I'm so glad I stuck with it because it really "made" the costume!
~ You can't see in this pic but the white lace bloomers she's wearing are an old pair of mine from when I was her age.
~ I am sad to say that the leggins are store bought. I was on a mission to find women's knee high sock and sew my own pair of baby legs (which is what I normally do...so easy and so much cheaper!) But I searched the city for knee high socks in that print and none where to be found. So her leggings in this picture are from My Little Legs.
~ I added a little face paint and DONE!
Trick or treating with her last night was a blast. At the first few houses she was very confused but eventually she got the idea. She would smile, wave "Hi" and "Bye" and even say "Thank you" after she reached into a bowl and grabbed her loot! Her Poppa (my dad) said that she stole Halloween!
