I am so happy that I am finally getting into a regular routine with Billy. I can even make time to craft! I sewed 2 dresses. One I designed myself and the other is Simplicity 2176. I will post pics as soon as I can get Brian to pin the straps so I can sew them on the back. Other than that they are complete. I also need to make a petticoat for the red dress with white polka dots because the full circle skirt does not hang properly. I have found a few good looking tutorials and I also have a Simplicity pattern that has a petticoat. I am not sure which one I will use yet though.

Halloween Costume!

I made Billy's Halloween costume. It was a blast. I made the mad scientist lab coat by altering the Kimono Wrap pattern. I made the pants using Simplicity 3711. I bought the little white shoes at Wal-Mart for $5. I bought toddlers swim goggles and painted them using non-toxic acrylic paints. It didn't work very well because the paint started to peel off. It didn't really matter though because Billy didn't want to wear them for long anyway. At least we got a picture.

Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer!
