My limited sewing skills are self taught, so when my 5 year old told me she wanted to be Lucy from Peanuts for Halloween, I panicked. I don't do sleeves well. I couldn't find a Lucy dress or pattern for that matter so I ended up using the top of one pattern and the bottom of another and I think it turned out pretty ok.  Cheesy My daughter was really happy with it.

Her 19 month old brother was Charlie Brown...just a little fabric paint, a yellow tshirt and some eyeliner for his forehead and that costume was complete. Her 7 month old brother was snoopy...I didn't have time to make that costume, so I bought a cheap lamb costume and replaced the lamb ears with a pair of my husband's socks.

Here is my little peanuts gang...

As soon as I saw "Charlie Brown" I loved this post!  You did a fantastic job with your Daughter's Dress! How does she know about Lucy?  I loved Peanuts when I was a kid.
  I loved this!
Again.. Great Job!

She watched The Great Pumpkin when she was 2 and became a huge fan. She just turned 5 and really can't read, but every Sunday she has to be the first to see the Peanuts comic. Then she cuts it out and pastes it in a photo album. She calls it her Snoopy book.
