Who's that girl?


Remember when moms had until Oct. 31st to have their children's costumes made? It seems like we celebrate Halloween all month long! Rebecca had an activity days Halloween party last week and this is the result of the "Geisha girl" costume. I sewed the little dress. And I had an interesting experience while cutting out the pattern! I lost the front sleeve pattern piece somehow. I searched the house high and low, and could not find it! So, I said a prayer like I usually do to find missing items. Instead of finding the piece this time, an idea came into my head on how to lay out the other pieces of the dress to figure out how to draw the missing sleeve piece! It's amazing how we are helped if we only ask. Heavenly Father wants to help us always, even with "silly" missing things!

WoW! I'm impressed! I wouldn't have been able to sew something like that even if I had the pattern stabled to my head! I really enjoy reading your blog- thanks for the invite.

Her costume looks great! I am impressed you sewed that! And I am thinking it is actually a good thing they use their costumes for more than one day...they are so much work!

Cute costume! I am very impressed! Micah wants to be a train this year. I'm still trying to figure out how I'll do that!
