Dio De Los Muretos Retro Dress and Kiddie Devil Costume

Forgive the horrible Cell phone pictures.

Halloween is upon us! This year our Halloween party theme is Old School Halloween. Ghosts, Witches, and Goblins abound! Since my husband has chosen to be a bed sheet ghost (no kidding) I only have mine to really work on.  I decided this year to go as a witch but go in a Bewitched route. I'm making a nice 1950's dress and go as a 1950's style witch.

This is the fabric for the witch dress. I completely fell in love with it!
 Working on the bodice of the dress. So far the fit ain't half bad. At the point this picture was taken most of it was just pinned together
....oh wow that is a horrible picture. Please ignore the muffin top.

The second project I'm working on is my little nephew's Halloween costume. My sister has two boys, one that is a year old, the other is three years old. She likes to dress them up alike on Halloween while they're still young and not wanting to chose their own costumes. This year They're dressing like little devils (how appropriate!) I'm currently making a costume for my three year old nephew.

I wanted this costume to look a little older and cooler than the tiny devil sleeper that my younger nephew will be wearing. The fabric charmed the heck out of me.

Close up. Its a scrubs pattern for a kids' doctors costume I doctored up. He'll also have a little knit cap with horns and a detachable tail as well. I'll be working on that next week.

I'm just about ready to attach the skirt to my retro dress so hopefully next update will be the dress more complete...and with less muffin top.
