I went as Louise Belcher from the cartoon Bob's Burgers.  Since I was a bit pressed for time, if I was going to put together a costume, I wanted one that I could also wear on a normal day if I so chose.  So now, not only do I have a lovely green dress, but I also have a sweet new bunny ear hat!  

Closeup of awesome hatness action:

Side view:

The hat, if you can believe it, is reconstructed from pieces of an old pink robe, and I made up the pattern as I went along.  The ties are actually the seams that I cut off the robe (I was in no mood to seam-rip a fluffy robe; far too time-consuming).  I thought the heart flaps over the ears were a nice little touch--and super warm!  I threaded some aluminum wire through the ears to make them stand more at attention.

Humble beginnings:

The dress is green cotton, constructed from the Butterick 4684 pattern.  I added the ruffle at the bottom just for fun.  It ended up being sooo comfy and I can't wait to wear it again. Smiley

The gal herself:

More fun:

Thanks for looking!
