This year for Halloween we let Peyton pick what she wanted to dress up as and after two days of thinking she decided to be Elsa and that Skyler was going to be Anna (poor Skyler got no say in it). Now I see Elsa and Anna costumes at the thrift store all the time and could have picked them up for about $1.50 each…but that’s not how I do things. I wanted to create the costumes myself! So I did hit the thrift store, but for clothes I could cut up and refashion.
I picked up a prom dress and two white shirts for Elsa.
For Anna I got a blue button up, black button up, silk skirt, and maroon jacket.
I could not be happier with how the costumes turned out and how cute the girls looked in them! Check out my DIY Inspiration HERE to hear more about the process of making the costumes.
Who did you/your kids dress up as for Halloween?? This was the first year in a while that I didn’t dress up because I didn’t have enough time to make a costume for myself (or Jeremiah). Anyway, hope you enjoyed seeing the costumes. Until next week, Happy Sewing!
