Well I got the bottom half done ha ha ha !! So far, I think I like it...
Thoughts? (though I wish I had made the elastic a lil tighter and the back a little higher, but for a first attempt, I'd say a good one considering I've never made pants before =D)

front close up


back with my awesome tail haha


and the baby pulling my tail XD


pardon the mess, the baby was 'helping' XD

Looks great! And baby looks to be helping to pull the tail offCheesy Too cute. And the lower back style is all the fashion rage, these days. Daughter is finally buying jeans that cover her "plumber's crack"! Very good first try at pants. I would not have guessed it unless you said something, and still I can't tell. Great choice of pattern and fabric.

I cheated... I used a pair of my favorite still-fitting bootleg jeans XD haha...though I thought about it...I might have accidently sewn the tail onto the 'front' of the pants instead of the back XD which is why its so low in the rear....whoops....o h well.... I'll definitely remember that next time

Though the fabric is just a $2 fleece throw blanket from walmart haha, making the baby's jumper with teh same stuff and she'll have a tail and a hood with kitty ears hehe

Well barely managed to pick what I wanted and get it done, ofc I have to get a few more pictures to show it off but I wanted atleast one of us on Halloween after her fun trick or treating hehe

The top is a bolero jacket with a wicked deep hood though I didnt use the hood because I made a lil headband with kitty ears to wear, and then there's the baby's matching leopard print jumpsuit which my grandmother made for her =)

And my amusing husband and his handmade cloak, and my brother (who was going as a survivor from chernobyl just for kicks, and everyone thought he was posing as a terrorist hahahaha!!) ahh fun times =^-^=

Best thing about the baby's costume is its double layed, lightweight fleece on the outside and polarfleece on the inside, and the tail is only tacked on so its easily removed. =D So she can use it allll winter long =^-^= I love things that are functional and awesome!

I still cant believe the baby really let me put makeup on her xD I considered sketching some leopard spots on our faces with my eyeliner (mineral  makeup ftw) but yeah I got lazy, so the kitty noses and eyeliner just had to do =D though everyone in town loved it, I had little kids comming up to pet my daughter thinkin she was a real kitty hahahaha!!

Most awesome costume was the random teenager in the creeper outfit, pity I had left my camera in the car....xD
