Very Easy Vogue V8882: Halloween Hi-Low Skirt

Halloween 2022 I made Very Easy Vogue pattern V8882 using a Halloween jack 'o lantern print fabric.  I decided to line the skirt in a different colour-way of the same fabric. I love how the contrast turned out. 

I'm wearing the skirt with my Steve Madden, black, thigh-high, stiletto boots.

Favourite Halloween Costume: Pennywise 🎈

 My favourite thing I’ve ever designed/made to-date is this Pennywise costume, the creepy clown from the movie ‘It’, by Stephen King.

Originally, I was going to make this outfit as all one piece, like a jumpsuit, but then I decided it would be easier to make puffy clown pants separate from the peplum top.

After  a second attempt at the collar, I was really happy with how it turned out.

I attached the hand-made pom-pom flowers to my top and to my Steve Madden stiletto books and I walked around my neighbourhood carrying a red balloon on a stick.

McCall's M6106: Halloween Cheetah 2019

Halloween 2019 I wanted to make my own costume, but was in a time crunch, so I decided to go with McCall's m6106, view C. I love the little mittens and how long the tail is (although it's a bit heavy to wear). Since I was in a rush, I didn't have time to make the hood with the ears, so instead I purchased a cat-ear/cheetah print headband. I used my house slippers for the shoes since they were brown and they somewhat went with the fabric.

Overall, it was a quick and easy make, which saved me in time for Halloween that year.
