This is the first year for my daughter to trick-or-treat, so I was sooo excited!  I asked back in August what she wanted to be so that I'd have time to make her costume.  I was expecting something really creative, like an exotic animal.  I wanted to be really creative, so you can imagine my disappointment when she said "I want to be a Princess!".  I procrastinated in hopes that she would change her mind, but she insisted.  This costume proved to be more trouble than I expected, however.  I was determined to only use what I had.  The dress was a woman's skirt, and the fabric was so slick it was almost impossible.  I made the earrings from some clip-ons I already had, and the bag was some old t-shirts.  My baby's headband is from the hem of one of the old t-shirts and some orange strips from another.
Anyway, here's the pics:

The bag

The earrings

The headband

I knew the straps would stretch on the bag, just not how much!  It was dragging the ground before we were done. 
Thanks for looking!  All comments and criticism welcome!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

You did a great job, especially considering you didn't buy anything and your daughter wasn't cooperating with your grand dreams!  She looks so proud... I bet she had a great time!  Your baby looks very festive, too!
