Princess for a Day

So Amy is host her weekly Sew N Tell.  Technically it was due yesterday but I just finished up my project and I am posting today.  :)  So my finish for this week was my daughter's Halloween costume.  She wanted to be a princess this year.  I planned ahead(ha!) and grabbed McCall's M5731 when it was on sale back in Aug.  She picked out the colors, and I think after everything we spent $20 on materials.  This wasn't a super cheap costume but I think it's nicer than the store bought ones you get for $20.

I hemmed it this morning so it is all ready for trick or treating tonight.


I did a test fit last weekend and had to take up the shoulders about an inch.  Since I want her to wear this for awhile (for dress up), I just folded it over and did a quick hand stitch.  You can kind of see that and how messy my sewing is here.



And the final fitting, we couldn't find her crown this morning.  Hopefully it will turn up for tonight.





She loves it and so I am happy.  So what did you finish up this week?
