I’ve been making my daughter costumes since her second Halloween. She’s been a monkey, an owl, Alice, a ghost, Little Red Riding Hood, a spider, Rapunzel, a wolf, and grumpy cat. I didn’t make the wolf or the monkey costume, but the rest have been put together or sewn by me.
Last year, I was just too busy and I bought one, and this year I wasn’t sure I’d have time so I bought one, but I found some time to sew up a quick dress and participate in the blog tour this year.
Meet Wednesday Addams.
When I ran across this fabric from Hawthorne Supply Co, I KNEW it needed to be a Wednesday Addams dress. It was just too perfect. It’s the perfect combination of feminine tossed with something unexpected. Perfect for my daughter who picked it out.
I used the Double Dutch bodice and added the 3/4 sleeves from Every Which Way. I pointed the front and the back collar as well, but it was a really quick mod.
I think it turned out perfect PLUS it’s a dress that my daughter will wear outside of Halloween. I call that a WIN!
- Dress Pattern – Double Dutch bodice with Every Which Way sleeves and vintage length skirt.
- Dress Fabric – Eternal Gardens in Onyx from Hawthorne Supply Co.
- Boots – The Children’s Place
