Happy Halloween… Vintage Style ๐ŸŽƒ

This black and orange QUILTED dress is my costume today!  I’m going as a 60’s girl ๐Ÿ˜Š

The bottom half of this dress is seriously quilted!! I’m going to be so warm when I take my kiddos out tonight!!

There is even a pocket –  perfect for for keeping a secret candy stash!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

(This dress was half off at an Estate Sale – so it was $1.50)


Simone is going as Laura from Little House on The Prairre. She got her outfit from a church sale for $2.

The older lady that checked us out said she had made the dress and hat for a barn dance she attended when she was young.



Upcycle hoodies into animal costumes

Last year,ย my youngest sonย was REALLY into super heroes.ย  He wore a costume every. single. day!

Then I found this adorable dog sleeper at Goodwill for $2… and he switched to wanting to wear animal costumes.


Everyday, he thoughtย of a new animal he wanted toย be.

So I went toย several Goodwills and bought an assortment of hoodies.

I used felt and my sewing machine and in about 20 minutes per costume, I made him a whole zoo of animals ๐Ÿ™‚

I found a girly striped sleeper, that I transformed into a Zebra costume with a yarn tail andย an eared stocking hat.

(I folded the pink inside the sleeper and hemmed it so the pink wouldn’t show and sewed a heart over the pink zebra)


I found a green swim cover up and transformed it into a frog costume.


I am sorry that there are no actual directions.

But these costumes are really simple and cheap!

Perhaps the pictures can act as guides and give inspiration for your own animal costumes!
