It all started years and years ago
When I chose to make a Halloween costume for
Daughter Sarah's second Halloween
A clown costume
Big enough that she wore it 3 or 4 years before we had another costume
She was a cute clown!
Last year, she asked me to make Grand girl Lucy's costume
And chose Little Red Riding Hood
This year, she asked once again for a costume for Lucy
Alice in Wonderland!
Last year's pattern refitted to make an Alice dress
And of course, Alice has a white apron
Which I had no pattern for --
But I was able to somehow make an apron!
She wanted Grand girl Piper to be
"The White Rabbit"
and I said that I'd make her a costume
but Sarah said "no"
I don't always obey so . . .
I took a pattern for a "dog" and made it into a rabbit
Alice's dress finished
And Piper's White Rabbit
(complete with clock -- for the rabbit is always late!)
All finished and pressed
ready to be folded and packed into a box and mailed.
Sarah was surprised (and pleased) by Piper's costume
And since I had made the costumes
(not being able to have a fitting before I finsihed them)
Piper's fit's perfectly
(and she seems intrigued by her "watch")
And Lucy as Alice . . .
It fits as well.
Why, you might ask, does she have a black boot on her left foot?
(why, she fell down a rabbit hole, I answer, and broke her toe!)
The girls have worn the costumes twice already
Once to a trunk or treat in their town
And again to their day care Halloween party
But tomorrow night is the night
And I can't wait to see Alice and The White Rabbit
all ready for Trick or Treat!
