Introducing...the Morton Salt Girl!

Halloween is almost here! I've started a tradition of making Jensen's Halloween costume each year (her first Halloween as a pumpkin, and last year as Supergirl) This year is definitely my favorite - she is going as the Morton Salt Girl! I finished her costume a few days ago and we thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and take some photos of her in it since we're going to be pretty busy later this month. She had so much fun twirling around in the full circle skirt and carrying her little white umbrella! I used a Simplicity 1547 Project Runway pattern pieces for the sleeves, bodice, and collar but then adjusted the sleeve length, embellished with adorable trim at both the waist and sleeve and collar edges. I also added a full circle skirt instead of doing the gathered rectangular one that the pattern called for. After pairing her dress with white tights, yellow shoes, and an oatmeal container I converted to look like a Morton Salt container her costume was complete! We (well all the really good photos were taken by TC) took these photos at The Old Mill in North Little Rock! We're so excited for actual Halloween now! Jensen keeps wanting to put back on her dress and shoes! ha!
