Little Bo Peep and Her Little Sheep

 
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep...

 
and does not know where to find him.

 
Leave him alone and he'll come home...

 
with his tail wagging behind him.


 
Hold his hand and he may stay right beside you. : )

 
Yes, I sure finally finished all the costume sewing for this Halloween! Yippy!
/The two little ones are as excited as I am. OK, well Sweet pea is. I was able to get Prince C to wear his hat with no fuss too. I think that is because of the cold, windy days we have been having here.


Now on to the details of Miss Bo Peep costume! This is the under dress I shared with you the other week. The pink corset was made using a modified Fairy tail dress pattern, same as her dress. It has to be laced up to be put on to wear, Sweet pea's request. The trim used on the corset and bonnet was also a request of Sweet pea's too. My grandmother sent it to her back this summer and she called it her candy trim so it had, had to be used for her costume.
 
 
The petticoat was a Sunrise Designs pattern. It was my first time sewing with one of these patterns. I did change a wee bit of the pattern. I do love the bow and rose on the side.
 

 
The bonnet is a favorite of mine. It's from Mommy Apron strings blog, a free pattern.  I did have to enlarge it by an 1/2" to fit Sweet pea, it fits perfect too. I didn't have to change a thing on this part, I love it as is!



 
Well, I am done with the costumes! Are you still sewing any thing for your kids?
 
Happy Sewing!

    1. *blushing* it was really worth all of it. She adores her dress and Prince C is loves to rub his oh so soft belly. He stays just as snug as a bug in a rug.

    1. Awww, I am blushing here! I really did have a blast sewing these, it so much fun planning costumes then seeing them come together as you had panned. Sarah helped "design" her dress. I think that is why she loves it so.
