    Petra, who is 9, designed her witch outfit
    and I made it using an old pair of chiffon
    dressy pants. I used a scrap of fabric
    from an old costume for the sleeves and
    for the green trim. The vest I added using
    fabric scraps from another Halloween
    project and an old pair of purple cotton pants.

    The Corpse Bride costume is for Sydney, my 5 year old and youngest, grand daughter. She and I had the most fun designing it!! I still can't believe that my OLD (1959) Merry Widow corset actually fit around her! We will have to stuff the boobies, but she looked adorable in it. I painted the ribs and some lace onto it and then used a pair of old sheer curtains and light blue sheet to make the skirt and veil.
