Anna's Halloween Romper

The other day at Joann Fabrics, I found the best candy corn fabric.  I know, I know, I have an addiction to all things candy corn!  I bought a couple of yards to make something with one of my Whimsy Couture Patterns.

I wanted to make Anna something cute with this fabric.  I opened up my Pillowcase Romper Pattern and got started.

Let me make a confession.  I have tried sewing patterns before and bombed at them royally!  I have issue with following all the directions and not getting ahead of myself.  I love to sew by just looking at things and figuring them out.  Making clothes though isn't very easy when you just figure it out.

When I started working on this romper, I knew I had found the best patterns!  One word - PICTURES!  Denise of Whimsy Couture, provides a picture for almost every step of the pattern making.  I love this as my inability to follow directions can follow pictures and then go back and read the directions when I don't understand.  If you are new to sewing, these are the patterns for you.  Denise is very clear with how to do each step and you end up with a quality clothing piece.

Enough teasing you, let me show you what I made for Anna.
 This was an on the move picture. It is hard to tell, but the bottom of the romper is ruffled. From this pattern, I learned how to ruffle fabric (super easy, who knew?) and now I want to ruffle everything!

 I need to make her an orange flower clip for her hair.  The romper is a bit big, but since it is only a few days before Halloween, I knew she wouldn't get to wear it much.  Now, I can save it for next year and if she has a huge growth spurt it will be a capri romper.  I love girls, clothes go farther when they transition from pants to capris.

 She is saying, "Mommy please don't make me take anymore pictures!"

Here is my final product.  I think it turned out great!  I can't wait to try out some of the other sewing patterns.  I also want to get a serger now too.  To have that extra finished look would be fantastic!

Don't forget to enter the giveaway that ends Saturday, October 29!  I know I would love a free 3 pack of sewing patterns!
