Happy Halloween

To all of you!!! I had to sing Friday night so of course I had to make something up for the festive occasion. Simplicity 3629. I loved working this baby up. You can see my review below and at Pattern Review.

Pattern Description:

Misses Costume. I made View E

Pattern Sizing:

Dress 14
Vest 16
Cape 14
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes, most definitely.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

I glanced at the directions but did my own thing mostly.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I like everything about the pattern, and was able to make it up pretty quickly.

Fabric Used:

I used a suede type fabric from the costume section from JoAnns for the cape and vest. For the dress, I used a full size bed sheet that I purchased at Walmart for $8.00.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

The cape and the vest were suppose to be lined. Since I wasn't sure if I was going to use this costume again, I didn't line the vest or cape. I did reinforce the middle panel of the vest by cutting that piece out twice because I had to install grommets on it.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I might make the Peter Pan costume next year. Not sure yet.


I love the way this costume came out and it was a big hit.
