A friend of mine knows I like to sew...a lot! She asked me if I'd be up for making a Sally dress for her daughter for Halloween since this particular costume doesn't come in toddler size.  I GLADLY accepted her challenge! 

Here's the finished product! My friend made the tights & arm covers with white tights & black fabric paint.


To make the dress I cut a basic A-line dress out of flannel using the kids measurements. I then used plain cotton to cut out the color blocks that I needed to applique on to the dress itself.

This is after I had all my shapes cut out with fusible webbing between the fabrics. I ironed them together before applique stitching them on with invisible thread.

Here's the start of cutting out the webbing.



After I had sewn the appliques onto the flannel I used fabric paint to add fabric patterns. I let the paint dry for 2 days before I sewed the dress together.


Here it is before I put in the hot pink zipper!!

oh ehm gee! This is by far the best, cutest, thoughtfully crafted costume I've seen for a child all year! You deserve a ROCKS times 10. I love this sooo much, I might have to borrow this for my 4 yr old niece next year.

This looks amazing! It makes me want to gives this a try. Having no children of my own to base size off of, making kid clothes always comes out with mixed results. Tongue
