Halloween Edition 2013 Part I

October is here and the weather is chillier, leaves are turning orange-brown and falling to the ground. I love this time of the year I just want to wear my comfy sweater and drink a pumpkin spice latte and eat a pumpkin pie with whip cream. Anyways enough about what I love about October, well as you know Halloween is fast approaching, this year I had the privilege of designing not one but THREE Halloween costumes!! Here is my first out of three.

Halloween Edition 2013 Part II

Hello everyone, happy Halloween!! Hope you all had a wonderful time trick-or-treating or giving out candy.

Talking about children as I mentioned in the previous post I had the privilege of designing two Halloween costumes one for a little girl and the other for a toddler. This is my first time designing for a small person; it was so much fun and the patterns where super tiny. They both wanted to be Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas.
For the Toddler we decided to keep it original and close to Jack’s character. He would have a basic white button shirt, with a pinstripe suite and his bat bow tie. The back of the suite would have the tails flaring out just like Jack.
