Last Minute Halloween Costume Options

Happy Friday Darlings, Halloween is fast approaching. What will you be? Don’t have time to go shopping or simply on a budget? Well don’t worry I got you! Did you know that you can go shopping in your closet? Well if you didn’t know now you know lol. I’ll be sharing with you some simple ideas that you can put together using your everyday wardrobe and a few accessories.
First off we have “Where’s Waldo?” All you need are blue denim jeans, a red and white sweater. For the accessories all you need are some black glasses and a red beanie. This costume will be comfy, cute, and funny.
 

Another great option is the Morton Salt Girl. With a cute yellow summer dress, accessorized in Mary Janes with socks, and a black umbrella if you can’t find a purple one. I think this one is cute and creative.
 
Okay ladies this one is super easy. I know you all own a little black dress, but if you have a long black dress even better. Breakfast at Tiffany all you need is your LBD, black shoes, pearl necklace, gloves, and a tiara. You can’t go wrong with the fashion icon Audrey Hepburn.


This other option is catwoman, dress all in black, with leather pants, black heels, add little black mask and a dramatic red lipstick.


Want a cartoon option? How about Daphne, dress in all purple. For accessories add green scarf and a purple head band.

Here’s another cartoon option, Wilma Flinstone. Pull out a one strap dress, your pearl necklace, and sandals. Finish it off with a red lipstick.

 
Hope this helps ladies, I think what makes these every day wear more costume like is keeping the colors consisted to the character and adding few accessories. What also helps is going all out on the makeup and hair.

Heart Cut Out Dress

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I popped up on here! I've been crazy busy being a momma, wife, and a Etsy shop owner. It has been quite an interesting journey, very different from custom designing. I've learn so much these past months and I am continuing to learn. Hats off to you if you are a Boss Mom it takes a lot to run a home and a business!


I'll be sharing with you all some of my Etsy designs with you all incase you don't follow my social media or Etsy shop. Since we are still in the month of February I'll be sharing my Valentine's day dresses. I made two designs for my shop the first design is the Heart Cut Out dress.


For this design I wanted a fun focal point, I decided a heart cut out on the back would be cute. I started drafting and making a muslin sample I had to tweak it a couple of times because getting the heart shape wasn't as easy as I had thought. After three attempts I finally got the heart shape that I was aiming for. The fin…

Belle Inspired Dress

Ever since they announced the new Beauty and the Beast movie, I was excited to go see it since this is a classic Disney movie that I grew up watching. I really wanted to take my daughter and share a little piece of my childhood. She had already seen the cartoon version, so she was very familiar with Belle. She is a huge fan of the Disney princess, she can literally name them all. I thought it be cute if she wore an inspired Belle dress to go see the movie. I thought long and hard how I wanted to design the dress, because I didn't want it to be too overly done. My initial thought was lace but I really wanted her to be comfy while watching the movie. That week was pretty hectic to go fabric shopping, luckily I remembered I had a soft knit fabric in my stash!!

I wanted a modern take on the Belles dress, still keeping the classic yellow, and off the shoulders look. I quickly drafted the pattern pieces, which included an off the shoulder front and back. Before cutting the off the shou…

Pleated Floral Dress

This past Easter I wanted to make my daughter her Easter dress. I knew exactly how I wanted the dress to be basic bodice and box pleat skirt. I don't normally buy pdf patterns but I was short on time and the design was already available. I decided to purchase from Mingo & Grace the pdf pattern is called Blake. It is an amazing pattern it features basic bodice, racer back, box pleats on the skirt, and hidden pockets.
Beautiful close up detail of the dress.
I used a heavy twill cotton fabric which added shape and volume to the box pleats on the skirt. I omitted the hidden pockets because my daughter doesn't know about pockets yet. The bodice is fully lined and I used an invisible zipper. If you haven't noticed by now but I'm obsessed with invisible zippers they add a hint of elegance to the garment. The hem calls for 2" inches but I thought that was too much so I decided to do 1" inch hem. To keep the conceal theme going I decided to do a blind hem. Since …
