This black and orange QUILTED dress is my costume today! I’m going as a 60’s girl 😊
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!! 😉
(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.
Last year, my youngest son was REALLY into super heroes. 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 thought of a new animal he wanted to be.
So I went to 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 🙂
I found a girly striped sleeper, that I transformed into a Zebra costume with a yarn tail and 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!
