I have loved summer but I am eagerly awaiting the Autumn season.
Something about Fall is magical to me. The air, the smells, the beauty.... it's all wonderful, but one of my favorite things now that I have a sweet little munchin is Halloween!
With the season quickly approaching I thought I would share Felicity's no-sew clown costume from last year. This was so easy and fun to make!
1) I made a colorful no-sew tutu (click here to see a tutu tutorial - FYI: the tutorial tells you to sew the elastic waist together but I just hot glued it)
2) For the shirt I used a plain white onesie and ironed on heat transferred tie from Hobby Lobby (found in the clothing craft section)
3) For suspenders I just safety pinned two strips of turquoise sequence elastic also purchased from Hobby Lobby onto the waist band of the tutu.
4) I bought the wig at a costume shop for $4 - clown wigs are super easy to find so that shouldn't be a problem for anyone to locate and under it she wore leggings that she already had. Any bright colored leggings would be cute.
The best part of the costume is afterwards she was able to wear the tutu with all kinds of different outfits until she outgrew it and she also wore the shirt with colorful skirts and cardigans during the Fall until she outgrew it as well.
Warning: Clowning around is hard and exhausting work!
