I am always one for leaving things until the last minute. When my daughter tried her old Halloween costumes on Saturday morning they did not fit.


Don’t worry I said, we will think of something.

‘Rushes around and panics’ Thinking cap on!!

I went into the garage and find out all the old costumes she had collected over the years. Then I thought of an idea. ” Lets up-cycled the old ones and make one dress that fits you”

She looked a little puzzled but let me work my magic on them!!

The 3 old costumes I used:

The end result:

Even long enough to wear next year!! 

I cut the arms off on costume to make arm warmers too.

My daughter admitted after, I thought you were going to make a complete mess of it!!

“She said” You did great, it is the best I have ever had because it is all my Halloween costumes in one.

Pictured below 5 years ago when she first had one of the dresses:
