Around the end of September I started to ask my sister if she was going to dress up on Halloween, I remember that she dressed my nephew as a pirate. At the beginning she was thinking on dressing my 8 month niece as a ladybug but then she came to me and ask me to make her a princess Leia costume. It was not complicated, it took me about 2 days to make it working on it on my spare time, I think that it took me longer to get the baby’s measurements.
Instead of a button I sew an invisible zipper on the back, a snap would have been better but because it didn’t have a lining and because it was fleece it would have ripped.
One week before she asked me to make her a hat, so I did, I make her a hat with earflaps, so she could attach the hair buns. My sister made the hair buns and the belt. I thought that she was going to be uncomfortable with the hat but she didn’t seem to be bothered by it, the only thing that my niece didn’t like was to have the hood on. I am going to try to take a picture of her with the hood on.
