How many times have you said to yourself "I really want a cute (fill in the blank) but I can't find one anywhere!". I've wanted a unique Halloween skirt for like, ever, and since no stores in the world (save for Etsy!) have any awesome ones, I just made my own:

UPDATE: Here's the newest skirt I made this year. I finished it on Halloween and wore it out when I visited the haunted Waley House in Old Town San Diego on the big night.

Simplicity 5005 was a good pattern choice, but all those curves were kind of a bear. They can never be too smooth for me, so the few tiny puckers drive me nuts. You have to look up close to see them, though.



This was the skirt I made a couple years ago. I used Simplicity 4705 which was a great pattern. It has a side zip, witch fabric with glow in the dark eyeballs, contrasting green stripe waistband fabric, 2 rows of grosgrain ribbon at the bottom AND some gathered black tulle. Oh how I love this skirt.

My sister and I are huge Halloweenies, so this past May we had "Mini Halloween". We dressed up, put on a little gore makeup, went to the candy store for treats, the grocery store for ingredients, and came home to make Stuffed Intestines and watch The Shining. Best Day Ever. I can't wait for Halloween!

A couple years before that, I made this skirt! This one I did on the fly, no pattern, and adding details as I went on. It was my first experience using interlock as a waistband, and it turned out pretty good. I love the teeny bows and sheer, glittery bat material that's underneath. 

PS- If any of you crafty peeps would like to see your creations featured on my Halloween website, please see this post. Thanks!

PPS- Yep, we got some strange looks that day, but also made a lot of people smile and congratulate us for doing something "so creative". Score.
