This is me…stepping into the sewing confessional. I have a secret to share. In 2011 I made a Poodle Skirt for Anne’s Halloween costume. It was WAY too big for her, so big that it kept falling off, though perhaps if I had FINISHED it I wouldn’t have had that problem. It also didn’t help my cause any that my awesome mom bought the cutest tutu to go underneath it to act as a crinoline. Anne fell in love with the tutu and decided that she would rather wear that than the unfinished skirt. So I did what I thought any beginning clothes sewist would do, I just abandoned the project. Here is Anne on Halloween just before she turned 2. Get ready for some serious cuteness. (Oh! And there is one finished sewing project in these pics, her trick-or-treat bag was made by yours truly.)
Now that you have gotten through all the cuteness that is my baby and family, you can now see a pic of the finally finished poodle skirt. Anne still fits in it (which tells you how over sized it was 3 YEARS ago!) but will only fit it for about 3 more seconds.
I leave you with my husband’s awesome pumpkin carving from 2011.
