Halloween is on the horizon and it's a great idea for picking up good deals on kids' clothing. My daughter snapped up matching shirts for her children but Zara balked. She wanted a girl version! Luckily I had a quick idea for adding some feminine fun to a Halloween top and I am here to share it with you.
Here is Henry's top. I think it's fun for anyone for the month of October. Plus last year, I bought them matching shirts and did not realize that they both had orange glitter.
He was only one year old, I realize. But he's apparently pretty secure in his masculinity. He dealt with the glitter just fine.
I brought her to my ribbon drawer, which is a mess, you are right. She picked out the purple which I think goes well with the green/yellow of the shirt.
This ribbon is not two sided so I had to turn the second side when I made the bow. It might look a little odd here but when I sewed it down, it looked just fine.
I stitched it onto the Frankenstein hair. By this point, Zara had lost interest and was playing with her own fabric scraps. I got to put it where I wanted, hooray!
Everyone was happy with the final result. The ribbon is washable but obviously it is perkier before that. I had other ideas for ways to make this shirt more feminine.
I could have put a row of ribbon or lace around the neck. I also could have put some eyelashes and lipstick on Frankenstein. But the ribbon was perfect, fast and easy.
And she's a cute Frankensteinette?
Oops, I published this early! Oh well. Enjoy!
