I like it!  It is a little roomy, but she'll be able to grow into it which means it will last longer. 

For the sleeves, I would do a button type tack thingy.  That way you don't have to take the stitching out when her arms grow and you need to let down the sleeves.  Those type of finishing touches makes it extra special, although it already is.  Great job!

Love the Tinkerbell costume.  What a cutie!  Great job on the costume too.

This is probably the cheapest costume I'll ever do. 

Last October we had NO money.  I really enjoying doing costumes and was disappointed that I couldn't do much.  A coworker helped me come up with this cheap costume which was a hit. 

I spent $2 for 2 pairs of black socks from the dollar store.  DD had this outfit of a black top and pants which actually had white and pink cats on them, but I turned them inside out. I cut off the legs of a pair of support pantyhose which fit perfectly around her waist.  Using a piece of cardboard from a pizza box as a brace inside the support part of the pantyhose, I stuffed each sock with packing peanuts, threaded each one through the pantyhose and cardboard and voila, a spider!

DD as a spider.

Here she is throwing a fit on the floor, but you can see the arms a little better.

I wanted to thread the arms together so they would move when she did, but I ran out of time.  I think it would have bothered her anyway, but I was still pleased with the results.

Those sleeves!!!!! Angry

Thank you for noticing.  I'm glad they turned out so well with the details and all, but they took me a week!  I could only sew at night after DD was in bed, and they required so much pinning and careful edge stitching.  I kept telling DH, "Never again,"  but if DD wanted another one, I suppose I would.   Undecided

I didn't get to see her with the choker and head band.  She looks great!  I still think you did a great job!

The topsy turvy doll is adorable in person.  I hope she gets the hang of it! LOL!

How adorable!  And your little guy makes a handsome pirate.  Very cool.

How cute!  I love it with the white shrug.  So feminine and up-to-date.  Great job.

The girls did have a blast and so did I!  I thought the Cinderella dress was beautiful, even if her royal highness didn't put all of the accessories on.  All the girls looked so sweet.  You throw great parties!

Thank you so much for all the compliments on my DD and the dress.  I just love how it turned out.

Now I have to find a new project!

Thanks for all the sweet comments on my DD and the dress.  I do love the extra memories tied into it.

MistressT--I think you are right about letting little ones wear costumes for other occasions besides Hallowen and parties.  I had DD try on the dress the same morning of the birthday party to finish the hem.  We still had to run a few errands before going and she insisted on wearing it out.  I decided to let her and she got so many comments while walking around in Target.  It was too cute!
