The very first moment I laid eyes on my baby when she was born I thought, "Oh, she looks just like an Indian doll!"  I wanted her to be an Indian for Halloween last year but didn't have time to make her a costume.  This year I searched many stores and couldn't find a pre-made Indian costume in her size, so I had to make it.  I'm really happy with it, and I think I'll be making her Halloween costumes from now on:


The top I drafted using a dress she already had, but I ran into trouble when her big ol' baby head wouldn't fit through the neck opening.  Once I fixed that, the rest was no problem.  The pants I made from a capri-pant pattern which I modified.  The headband has velcro on the back so it's adjustable.

Thanks all. 
While making it, all I could think about was how elaborate some REAL Native American garments are, and how they used to all be handmade.  I have nothing but admiration!
