Halloween Pillowcase top



This is my daughter as the model, but it is actually for Savannah...won't she be "cool" in her new halloween top?

Please ignore the fact that she doesn't have on pants...it is actually a shirt, and I think I may be raising some kind of nudist...ha ha

Thought I'd add a little more detail --

This takes about an hour to make from start to finish. They fit great as a dress for an 18 month to 2 year old, then again as a shirt as they get to be about 5 or 6 years old -- they look great with a long sleeve shirt underneath so they extend into the winter season -- I've seen lots of kids wearing this type of top at school this year - even a teenager had a dress like this at church on Sunday!

You could definitely do it, the only tricky part is sewing that bias edging into the armpits. Total cost about $1.25 for the fabric and ribbon...not bad huh!?!

Hmmm, I may have to learn how to do these. So cute!
