My sister called me a couple weeks before Halloween and asked if I would make her youngest daughter (my niece who turned 1 a week before Halloween) a witch costume for Halloween.  Everyone in my family is big Harry Potter fans... so I thought I should make her a Gryffindor witch!

The costume is crocheted, except for the long sleeve shirt, which I freezer paper stenciled a tie on.  I used part of a pattern for the hood of the cloak I found on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-girls-cape#)  I only used it for the basic hood shape, then just crocheted as I went along.  The rest (the hat, the skirt, and the scarf) I didn't use a pattern for.  I also had no measurements so I was very happy when it fit her perfectly. 

I added a ton of tulle to the skirt and at the bottom of the cloak, and used tulle as the bowtie drawstring on the skirt.

I visited my sister's family a week before Halloween so we could give the costume a test run.  And run it was, I couldn't keep up with her to take any good shots, but I took a lot, and here are the best.

I took some shots outside, but we forgot her scarf.

And finally, a shot with her big sister, Little Red Riding Hood.

Thanks for looking!
