Extra Inspiration & Round Up with MandyK Desings

All last week we saw beautiful costumes and a couple of knock offs all made with Mandy K Designs PDF patterns. Just in case you missed any of it here's a round up with all the direct links to each project. I also thought it would be nice to give you some extra ideas and inspiration in your search for the perfect Halloween costume so read all the way down to the end of the post.

Day 1 started off with Wining Wife who created an adorable little Alice in Wonderland dress with the English Rose pattern.

We also had Sibling Revelry use Dandelion Wiches to create this sweet knock off.

Day 2 started out so festive a beautiful Christmas tree by Call Ajaire...

an elagant Cleopatra over at Rebel & Malice using Cyan Lily...

And I made a knock off (right here)  using the Happy Days Pattern.

Day 3 were a princess and fairy kinda day. Over at Phat Quarters we saw a stunning Belle costume...

and Lulu & Celeste created a sweet tooth fairy. Both were made using the Princess Party Dress pattern.

On day 4, the last day we saw Manning The Machine create a scene right our of a vampire movie...

The fairest of Snow Whites over at Paisley Roots...

And a mash up with her take on the malt shop girl over at Sew out of Control.

So much fun to see all those different ideas come together! There was sewing from the stash, mash ups, 4 different ways to use the Princess Party dress, knocks offs, not to mention a whole bunch of inspiration. Here are a few more ideas:
Use the Happy Days dress to create a one piece cheerleader's costume, or maybe Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany's with the Cyan Lily. I can also see the Cherry Blossom dress hacked into a tunic and add pants to make your little one a Kung Fu master. And well there's also the obivious variations on the Princess Party Dress...Anna and Elsa and just about any Disney princess. The main thing is to enjoy making these costumes and no matter what I think your little model will love them! Don't forget you can also dress up your little one's 18" doll seeing that most Mandy K Designs also include the pattern to make the dolly dress too!
