We loved Marys homemade Halloween costume of sally stitches. Mary wrote and told us how she had searched everywhere for a kids sally stitches costume but to no avail.
Here’s how she made it
She used a red woollen wig from a previous costume, a pair of black tights with some stitches on them and a pair of black and white striped socks that she has pushed down around the ankles.
Making the dress
Mary made a loose fitting dress from a plain white sheet.
They marked out the “pieces” and design on to the sheet dress and then cut them out.
The cut out sheet pieces were then used as a template on different colored fabric that they then decorated with paint by hand.
All that was left then was to sew all the pieces back together, resulting in a fabulous looking sally stitches dress. A wicker basket and some fake black roses finished the outfit off a treat.
We would like to say thank you to Mary and her daughter for sharing, and congratulate her on winning 2nd prize in her local Halloween and carnival competition.
