It’s that time of year, everyone is in crunch time to make their last Halloween items. The question always lies, to costume or not to costume. I myself tend to lean toward making a new costume every year but you can’t always go out in full costume. For this reason this year I decided to make a few quick tops/dresses to wear for non costumed events.
I chose the Galena Dress from Little Lizard King, The Plantain Top from Deer and Doe, and The Vista Top from George and Ginger. I chose these 3 designs because they were something a little special. The Galena and Vista both have fun design elements and the Plantain offers a simple beauty. Also so important both the Plantain and Galena are free patterns!
To make these spooky I chose fabrics to represent the season. The Plantain is made with a star embellished black mesh fabric I picked up from The Bra Makery. The Galena is made from a knit Art Gallery Bat fabric I picked up from Phee Fabrics. Lastly the Vista I made with a fun forest knit I got from Jumping June Textiles. These prints could put anyone in the spooky spirit! Happy Halloween!
