October Finish – Cutest Pink Tiger Ever!

I actually finished my goal way at the beginning of the month. The most complicated article of clothing I have sewn to date, Anne’s Halloween Costume!  I took her shopping at JoAnn’s to pick her fabric and being the pink girl that she is as soon as she spotted the pink tiger stripe, it was all over but the paying.

I used the Simplicity 2855 pattern and was able to use the smallest size, which is nice because the 2 small sizes were printed separately from the larger ones so I could save them for a future costume.  This pattern included tons of new skills for me. The costume is a zip front jumpsuit.  Inserting a zipper into fleece was all new to me, I had to sew the entire costume with my walking foot, and I made a lined hat.  I’m very proud of the way it turned out and as you will notice…I think Anne likes it too!


Here she is from the front, the pink socks were a total coincidence (as I said, this girl loves her pink!). I even made her little mittens – which will come in handy tonight when it is FREEZING!

Check her out from the back. And now for the real cuteness – she felt the need to check out her tail! LOL

So there you have it! My October Finish! Did you finish your goal? There is still time to link up!

We have lots planned today. There will be a costume parade at Kindergym, then preschool in costume, and finally trick or treating later this evening. I bet she sleeps really well tonight!

Happy Halloween!

    I can honestly say I’ve never seen a cuter pink tiger! =) She is adorable, and that last picture is definitely a winner in the cuteness category. Now are there little pink shoes, too?

    Awww you did a fantastic job. She is such a cutie pie. Love the outfit you made. I remember those days. We had so much fun picking costumes, fabrics etc. Just as you did. My kiddos are now 28 and 25 and they still remember a lot of the costumes I made. And they both sew because of my sharing my love of sewing with them. Pretty sure Ann will be similar. Have a fun and safe day and night.
