Happy October!

Sorry I've been MIA lately. Long story, but the crux of it is that my house is almost ready to go on the market, and trying to get organized for a move after 18 years of living in the same house is.....well......a challenge at best. Add 30-40,000 sewing patterns to the mix and it becomes almost surreal. :-)

So here we are in October, so I thought I'd show you some great Halloween looks. I love fall (my asthma doesn't), but Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I call it the holiday to punish uncreative parents, because I always had a real challenge coming up with costumes for my two sons and one daughter that would pass their muster.

Not that I'd want my daughter wearing this one, then OR now. It's a little too grown up for a little girl today, and a bit more revealing that my blood pressure can take for my now 20 year old daughter. (Not that I have any say so with her anymore......). That being said, it's a cute concept. It'd be great if you wanted to be Jeannie, from "I Dream of Jeannie." Or Princess Jasmine. It's Butterick 5053, from 1949. Alas, I can't find a copy online.

  1. awww youre just being a great mom. No one wants to look at their daughter even when shes 40 dressed like a floozebox! lol :) Although she will do what she pleases, she will always remember her mom respecting her body and caring about how she looked no matter what the occasion. You cant put a price on love like that. It's a little thing, but those little things really matter. They stick with you. :)
