After much sewing, more sewing, shopping, sewing, painting, and more sewing...
The costumes for this year's Halloween:
Jolly Holiday Mary Poppins and Bert.
The dress with added ruffled lace trim and satin ribbon. Dreamy.
(oh yes, I used bridal lace. I thought the lady cutting it was going to die when she heard I was making a Halloween costume out of it.)
The hat with flowers and tulle.
The 4 layers of skirt with ruffled lace trim and lots of little satin bows.
Bert with straw hat, painted (by me) suit coat, and bright blue bow tie.
The bamboo cane, of course.
Little suit pants and the all important blue socks.
My husband thought the socks were too much.
I thought he should have thanked me for not getting him white shoes.
And one last walking photo, just for good measure.
That kid is so happy it makes me happy just to think about him. :)
