Here's my baby's first Halloween costume (I don't know HOW I'll top this next year..lol), made from a vintage Simplicity pattern, with my alterations. I also made up the wig and the belt.


I have also posted the costume here

By hand!
You can view the construction pics (photo set on flickr) here!
It was fun to make, and took less time than I had anticipated, and I finished WAY before Halloween.
