Boo! Look What DD #1 is Going to be for Halloween

DD #1 wants to dress in a traditional Czech folk costume for Halloween this year. I’ve been looking for peasant blouses and white skirts to no avail. Today I stopped at the local thrift store and hit pay dirt! I found a blouse, skirt, slip and red tank top for $14! In the next few weeks, I will shorten the skirt, make the tank top into a vest, use my sewing machine to embroider some embellishments onto the the skirt and the vest, put ruffles of netting on the slip to make it into a petticoat petticoat, and buy some ribbons to go in her hair and around her waist.


I can’t tell you how happy I am to have this problem solved…the real thing would have been hundreds of dollars!
