I just love when I get to do a Halloween costume that will be worn as an everyday outfit as well. Because who really wants to put a ton of work into a dress that will only be worn once. I was beyond thrilled when I asked my 2 year old daughter what she wanted to be for Halloween this year and she responded with an enthusiastic, Lucy!! Followed by her favorite quote, “do you poop out at parties?”.
Her dress was created by altering a pattern I already had on hand (The Dainty Darling dress) in one of my favorite sewing books, “Sew Classic Clothes for Girls” by Lindsay Wilkes.
My dress was created using Butterick’s B6018.
I have to admit, I am so beyond pleased with this pattern. I think I am going to have to sew it up again in view b.
But the best part of our costumes, is the fact that only the aprons were the costume-y bits and we can wear our dresses out again for a wonderfully vintage mommy and me look!
