Prince C's Halloween Costume!

Mommy had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow...

everywhere that mommy went, her lamb was sure to go. : )
This little nursery rhyme was playing through my head as I was sewing along. He is going as a little just not mommy's little lamb. Sweet pea is going as Little Bo Peep and he is her little lamb. I picked his costume out and she requested to dress along with him. How cute is she?!? : ) 

The fabric is from a lovely, oh so soft blanket from Better Homes and Gardens. My mom and I seen it in the store, it has little swirls of softness and the blanket was fully lined, score!
I used all Oliver + S patterns for this costume this year. The shirt is sail boat, I used hook and loop tape instead of buttons, easier for dressing & easier from sewing! The pants are the sleep over pattern, fully lined with an added tail. The tail wags when he waddles. It is too cute, I wish I could take a video and show you it in action. The hat is from The Little Things To Sew book. All of it came together very quickly, well it would have been quickly if I would not have tried it on him after each step in sewing it. ; )

The great news is he loves the pants and fabric. As he is still wearing this and he is still sleeping. I think it's a magic sleeping costume.
The bad news, he does not care for the shirt and totally hates, hates the hat! We are all trying to get are little prince to wear it so maybe he'll cave in before Halloween, just maybe...I hope.

Next up some black LTTS mittens for him then onto to Sweet pea's Little Bo Peep!
Happy Sewing!

    1. thank you! I think that this costume will go onto a teddy bear after he out grows it.

  2. He is so precious! I love the costume. Hopefully by Halloween he'll like wearing the hat and shirt.;)

    1. I hope so too! He is starting to leave the hood alone on his coat as it gets colder so I think it is a good sign.

  3. Oh! So, so, so darling! And snuggly! I love it! Hopefully you'll be able to keep him in his hat long enough for a photo shoot and maybe some trick-or-treating? In my experience, kids figure out that costume = candy pretty quick! Good luck! Can't wait to see Bo Peep.

    1. Thank you! Sweet pea is super excited this year. I finished her dress now just to make the other three pieces.
