I'm not a Halloween person. I don't decorate, I don't like handing out candy, and I don't like costumes - bought or made. This, though, this I have to say I'm kinda nuts about:
Peg + Cat? It's Lisi Loo's favorite show and was the only thing she wanted to be for Halloween. It was definitely do-able, and she was just so excited - I couldn't say no. Luckily she's too young to care that no one will have any idea who she is when she dresses up. Here's a picture for reference:
Pretty close, right? The leggings are a little different because I couldn't find striped fabric in colors I liked, and she was disappointed she wasn't getting new red boots, but other than that we're both tickled with the outcome.
Mini Mod dress pattern by Sewing In No Man's Land. I split the front in two and added room for the button "placket", lengthened and slightly tapered the sleeves, and fully lined it. I made the size three to be sure she had room to layer under it, but did end up shortening it about two inches.
I based the cap pattern off a few different free crochet patterns I found online. It's a little small, but that actually works well for the costume, I think.
Oh - and the Cat pattern was self-drafted, too, if that's not obvious. Made out of blue and white fleece. It was the part I was dreading most but (except for the leggings) probably went most smoothly.
