Happy October folks!
Venus from Suburbia Soup here! While Tasha is away I thought it would be fun to pop in and share with you a 'ghastly' ensemble for Lala of our most favorite time of the year... Halloween!
Ah, I just love this time of year when the days grow shorter and the temperature starts to drop. A sense of giddiness takes over and my domesticity is in full force. I want to bake- I want to sew- I want to nest- all of these desires feeding my need to make. The "fall" ideas that were carefully tucked away in my mental notes throughout the year are now surfacing along with new ideas and every year only a select few become reality.
So many projects... so little time...
SO! Let's start with project #1 shall we?
Oh the Ghastlies! Such a wonderfully wicked family, no?
When I pulled this fabric out of my stash a slew of possibilities danced in my head. Bloomers? no. A shirt? nah. A dress? eh. A skirt? Hmmm... yes, YES! That's it!
A simple gathered skirt to showcase the brood of misfits and undesirables. How delightfully perfect.
Next was the top. I opted for the raglan style seen HERE and HERE. I used a sweater knit made of some sort of polyester mix. It's nice and feels quite soft, but I noticed after washing is that it has a tendency of having static cling. Perhaps not setting it in the dryer? Anyhoo... it's easy to sew and I used black ribbing for the trim.
Quick. Easy. Happy.
The top and skirt was a quick sew. Sewn up in one night. I think if you're planning on sewing an entire wardrobe, the bulk of your wardrobe should be just that... a quick sew. Have a few pieces that are 'wow' pieces that'll take your overall ensemble to another level. Which leads me to my last piece of Lala's outfit...
the hoodie scarf.
New and revised from the original hoodie scarf seen HERE. Now the ears are purrr-fectly placed.
The revision is easy, almost too easy. It's the, "Why didn't I do this in the first place", easy. So within the next couple of weeks, I'll have a tutorial on the revision posted!
Now it's time for me to bid adieu and head back to my little ol' blog. It was fun hanging around and I hope you liked the little treat I shared.
Happy making, everyone!
Thank you, Tasha for having me!!!
