Happy Halloween! Round One.

A few weeks ago, we hit up the Isle of Wight County Fair with Nana Leslie - where she bought this adorable Halloween headband.

But, Ev had nothing to wear it with during the day of Halloween. 

So, I made something.

This little dress, which I whipped up yesterday afternoon, using this tutorial and this free pattern (yes, it is for a shirt, I just lengthened it to be a dress) on some orange gingham seersucker fabric I picked up a few weeks back.

 If you are going to try it yourself, the pattern runs a leetle big, in my opinion, but then again my baby is a string bean, so... (this is the 12-18 month pattern)

It was super simple and easy, and now we have a dress for today, and for Thanksgiving. We added these adorable little purple polka dot tights to keep her warm, and bam. Cute outfit.

I seriously would have never, ever thought I would be "that" mom who makes clothes for her kids - but this was easy. I love being the mom to a little girl. We headed outside this afternoon to enjoy the sunshine and a snack after so many days of rain. I think someone likes her new dress.

 And then we were off to wave at passing cars and puppies.

More Halloween photos to come y'all. Have a great one!
