My little Angel….easiest costume ever!

My little peanut is a little angel….most of the time (she paid me to say that…) seriously–she is a fabulous kid (as is Conner…I need to post about him, he is starting to get annoyed….actually I don’t think he realizes yet that I am blogging)  She decided to be an angel for Halloween…. So here is what we came up with. Nevermind the jeans—she is going to wear leggings…and her face all glittery…and all that jazz—but you get the idea.
Total cost is about $15

You will need:
  • 2 yards of white muslin
  • 1/4 yard of something flashy (ours is silver large sequined fabric)
  • 3 different flashy fun silver fabrics (1.4 yard of each)
  • Non roll elastic for the measurement of the childs waist
  • 4 silver pipe cleaners
You cannot mess up this project—just go with what you feel is fun!
Spread out your white muslin, in half—cut a small neck hole in the center. And on one side cut a slit about 2 inches. Fit over childs head to be sure it fits over. I backstiched on my sewing machine where I cut the slit so that it wouldn’t keep going ;) You could put a dab of glue there too.
Next cut a hole for the head in the 1/4 yard of sequin fabric.
For the skirt, you are going to cut the remaining fabrics into strips about 3 inches wide. These will be sewn to the elastic that you have measured to fit the childs waist.
We used tulle, and then 2 other silver fabrics.
Sew the strips close together and sort of gathered at the top. I didn’t pin them first…I just went straight the the machine…use a zigzag stitch.

For the crown, I twisted 2 silver pipe cleaners together. I formed to a circle. I covered the pipe cleaners with some of the fabric I used on the skirt–hot gulling as I went around the circle. I tied to the back some other left over fabric.

She is ready for flight ;)
