My outfit

Here's my costume for tomorrow.  I'm going to be so cute!  I have a couple things in store -- and I don't know what they are -- to tell you about later.   I'm worried about those tall shoesies though...at least 3 inches.  Yiks!  But I'm super-proud of the gold anchor on the hat ... I did that myself with a needle, thread, and gold sequins.  Stories later.

Sailor girl

Well, the most important decision o the year if made.  I"m going to be a sailor girl for Halloween.  A dark blue dress with a cute rope belt, and I sewed a gold sequin anchor on the hat.  Little white gloves and dark blue heels, and I'm cute to go on Wednesday!!

But go where??

So here's the deal

Well, I got that Care Bars costume.  It fits me...if I were half the size.  I may try to make a halter dress of pink crushed velvet to fill in the spaces that fabric, er, wouldn't cover.  The top would go over it, and it would be a two-piece.  Some white tights and a pink shoes (maybe) would finish the outfit.

I also got a sailor girl costume that I would just need to add another tier to the skirt for, as illustrated at the right.  I can't find navy blue shoes, but I could get little black ones.  It's just not quite the same.
