Thank you!!

hippiekinder - You must live in a newer house too.  The picture is actually taken from the dining room table - it the common room combo living area/dining room that new houses seem to have.  The xmas tree is behind that classy decorator baby gate - it's not usually there. The kitchen is a couple rooms away.  But the paint colors are the same?  That is weird!

I have recovered a couple other things I meant to post. Maybe I will do that if I can dig up the photos.  It's not as hard as it looks.

I think I am in love with it.  I might marry it.  But I can't get a good picture of it.  This is my biggest reuphostery project yet.  There is actual blood from my body in that couch (but just s little!)

The cushions are crooked on this one.
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Doll clothes vintage pattern in teeny tiny envelope on: September 10, 2010 01:29:14 PM
I found a McCall pattern at an estate sale today in the tiniest envelope I have ever seen for a pattern.  It's about 1/4 the size of a regular pattern.  There is no number.  It does says printo gravure on the directions.

Does anyone have any idea about the year this might have been made? Or any other information? It's weird.

Thanks everybody.  I am enjoying all of the positive feedback!

I have been trying to think of a way to make the jacket everyday wearable!  Maybe with jeans and tshirt and a less bright ribbon?  I don't know if she'd think that was dorky or not.  About half my ideas are pure geek anymore!

I love the bees and ladybugs and princesses too but it's so cool to see something original.

And 2.5 weeks postpartum?  You are some sort of craft goddess!!!

Thanks!  Like MissTessaMelissa said, it's a lot of colors but truth be told, she didn't stand out that much because most kid's costumes are very, very bright colors.  She just sort of blended in with the fall colors in the dark!  I think she was one of three handmade or DIY costumes in our neighborhood.  We also had the Man in the Yellow Hat and a mime with a paddle that said "trick or treat".

I bought her suede boots from childrensplace.com last year for like ten bucks.  I also ordered two other colors for that price!

My 11 year old chose this White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland costume (Simplicity 3685).  She isn't big enough for adult sizes so we also purchased the corresponding children's pattern (Simplicity  2834).

I did make the vest from the adult costume, it's just a panel with elastic.  I found some old bunny ears in her dress up closet and I hat I used to wear to make her hat.  She found some sunglasses that we smashed the lenses from for her rabbity classes.  Her stepdad loaned her a very cool pocket watch with a chain - I made some little guides to hold it.  Then I realized she had no tail at the last minute.  I ran back up to the dress up closet but couldn't find a bunny tail.  I did find a Santa hat though.  It's now balless.

(there is one little string hanging from the front of her dress that I yanked off after these pictures. It's making me nuts to see it now!!!)

I love how it turned out aside from the plaids not matching up. She fell in love with this plaid upholstery and it was a bolt end.  I had to peice some corduroy in on the back.  I used lime taffeta for the lining. The dress is made from some drapery moire.  Her neck bow is aubergine lace.

She had a lot of fun with it.  She won best costume at her drama class on Saturday!
Here she is looking at her pocket watch and rapping about being late for her very important date.

**NOTE:  I posted this is in the kids thread before I saw this thread.  Do I need to remove it from the other thread?  Apologies in advance if I am doing it wrong...

These are hysterical!  My daughter would love to be the Black Knight! "Merely a flesh wound!"

Great job on the construction of the costumes too.
