A Lovely Year of Finishes – October Goal Party

Welcome to October! Time to bust out the pumpkins and all the little ghoulies! October is a fun month for my family, two of my favorite people (my mom and Anne) are downright obsessed with Halloween, and I always try to make it special.  Last year I made Anne’s Halloween outfit and I am going to do it again this year and that is my goal, very simple – make Anne’s costume.

Simplicity Pattern 2855Anne wants to be the cat. This will be quite a challenge for me as I still consider myself a beginner at clothes sewing. Tomorrow we will go shopping for our fabrics and notions and Thursday I will get started sewing!  Wish me luck!

As we approach the end of the year Shanna and I would love to get some feedback from you on how this year has gone! Please take a couple minutes to fill out our brief survey so we can get ready for Another Lovely Year of Finishes.

Your turn!

    I made a panda costume from this pattern about a year and a half ago. I have never sewn clothes before. You can do it!

  2. Vera says:

    I really am not sure if I should join in since I already failed twice. Oops.

  3. Debbe says:

    I’m sure good ‘sewing support’ is only a text away 🙂

  4. Andrea says:

    For some reason, the link to the survey didn’t work for me…
