It's been sooooo long since I've posted anything on this site, at least since I've had my baby and she's 7 months old!

My baby's due date was Oct 3rd (she was born Oct 15th), so I wanted to sew her a cute little Halloween costume. My husband proposed to make a blue penguin costume, which is a character from a video game (called a Prinny). 

I bought a pattern for animal costumes and the smallest size was 7-13 lbs. Good for a newborn, no? Well, not really. When I made the costume, the only part that was newborn size was the sleeve length. So I had a costume that was wayyy too big with short sleeves.

What to do? Well, since it wouldn't fit at Halloween, I kept it. When she was about 3 months old, she was the right size for the main costume. I removed the elastics in the short sleeves and added some flippers/wings to lengthen the sleeves. Then I put the costume on her even if it was January  Tongue

Here it is:


The character on which the costume is based has peg-legs so that's why the legs are brown  Smiley

I will, it's the point, isn't it? Wink

Next Halloween, it's gonna be way easier, since I'll have her to measure and try the costume instead of having to guess by looking at my belly Tongue !
