With the cool weather rolling in this past week I feel all out of sorts when it comes to dressing the girls. Currently their room is covered with a giant heap of warm and cold weather clothing all mixed up that I need to sort through badly. Every day I've just been grabbing whatever I know (or hope) is clean to put on them whether it matches or not, and I've just been satisfied that they are clothed. So, my goal today is to tackle the laundry, donate or store the summer clothes, and get organized for winter!
In the mean time we have been thinking a lot about what to be for Halloween, as I'm sure you have too. LM is very firm in her decision that she wants to be a butterfly, so I am thinking about dressing up Lark as a caterpillar. I can't seem to get it out of my head that our costumes need to be themed though, so where that leaves Husband and I is uncertain... I'm pretty sure he won't let me wrap him up to look like a cocoon. But, regardless of what we end up wearing I know it will include vintage since it's perfect for costumes! Here is what we've done the past couple of years...
When LM was one I made her a wind-up doll costume. It was so simple - a vintage dress, black patent leather 'doll' shoes, a key made from cardboard and a toilet paper roll, and rosy cheeks!
Last year when she was two I sewed her a Little Red Riding Hood costume using vintage and new fabrics.
Husband and I were the woodsman and the wolf disguised as Grandma. I wore my Great-Grandmother's shawl that she knitted herself - it was perfect since it was brown and furry! Granny glasses and a thrifted muumuu topped it off (I was about 5 months pregnant with Lark at the time so comfort was key). Husband let his beard grow out and wore a vintage plaid shirt.
Have you decided what you are going to be, and will it include any vintage?
