One of my friends called me the other day to ask if I could sew a costume for her husband. I said, "Depends... - what're we talking about." He wants to dress as a bottle of Crown Royal. That's easy. Since I was already on my way to the fabric store to get supplies for another costume for another friend, I just added purple panne and cording to the list. Here's the result:


(not the actual wearer. This is the husband modeling it for pics. Turns out the guy who's going to wear it looks more like Grimace in it. heh)

And the other fabric I was getting? For a Super Why costume for another friend:



It's made entirely of jersey, so the kid can wear it for a long time. Knowing the kid that's getting it, the costume will be worn daily. For months. The belt is a jersey tube over top of waistband reinforcement. The book on the chest had me stumped for a while. I didn't really know how I was going to make it, since I don't do applique. I initially thought that I would do an iron-on, but then I thought it might be cheesy. So as I was cleaning up all the scraps, I came across a piece of the blue jersey that had the angle of the book... and *poof* a light went on and I set to work. Found a scrap of white rib knit to create the pages of the book and yellow bias tape to create the rings. Here's a better pic of the true color and the book:



I still need to make the cape for it, but alas... it's done. Yay! I'll be shipping it off to California tomorrow - hopefully the kid will like it.
