Megan's Halloween Costume is Done!!

I don't have any pictures of the costume that I just completed for Megan, but here is the Simplicity pattern envelope.  I made the one on the right.  Megan found taffeta in the same color as on the pattern envelope and she even found the black and white striped material for the bustier!  Someone had given her a cute little black velvet hat similar to the one in the picture too!  There were alot of pieces in this pattern.  I thought the bustier would be easy and then I found out there were 8 pieces of boning in it, that need 8 little sleeves sewn onto the bustier and then you slide the boning in them!!!  The coat is lined and it took 4 hours to pleat the entire bottom half of the dress!!  All in all I think it turned out awesome, if I may say so myself!!  I will take a photo of Megan in her costume when she tries everything on and is all dressed up for her big Halloween party!  Enjoy Megs!!

How exciting - I'm sure she will be the best dressed! It seems like over the years, I've made just about every Halloween pattern there was. It's so much fun and my girls so loved it. I love all the details and work that went into yours.

Wow, that looks (and sounds) like a lot of work. I can't wait to see the pictures!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
