I finished the witch costume just in time.  Maggie was beginning to think she wasn’t going to have a costume.  She couldn’t wait for me to take a picture of her all decked out.

I’ll see if I can remember where I got all of the patterns.  The witch’s hat pattern was a free download at youcanmakethis.com.  The vest was adapted from an original Pleasant Company pattern, Felicity’s Pretty Clothes, which you may download here.  I didn’t use the sleeves or the ruffles, straightened out a couple of seams in the back, trimmed it as needed to even up things and top-stitched 1/8 inch on all the edges without using facings or a lining since it is made out of faux leather.  The long-sleeved tee is the same pattern I used for the skeleton tee except I just hemmed to neckline instead of binding it and made the sleeves much tighter.  The sleeves are made from the same fabric as the leggings.  More on that later.

The skirt is the Bubble Skirt pattern from Liberty Jane that you can purchase on pixiefaire.com as well as the boots which are a Miche design..  The leggings are made from a woman’s knee high (the other knee high was used for the sleeves).  I used the tutorial from AG Doll Crafts.  Worked out beautifully.

Now that Maggie’s costume is complete, the girls are ready for trick-or-treating.  Here they are in costume with their bags which was a free download from dolldiaries.com.

I had a lot of fun making these costumes.  I hope that you enjoyed following my progress and that you will try some of these projects for the dolls in your life.

Happy Halloween,

Lana, Daisy, Lily, Nikki, Maggie, and Pansy
