Elizabeth has been set on being a white rabbit for Halloween for at least the past few months. I don’t know what made her choose it, but I thought it was a pretty cute idea.
In my pregnancy laziness, I was going to just buy her a costume instead of making it (like buying last years ladybug), but rabbits are clearly not the popular costume of the season since I couldn’t find one in stores and the online prices were ridiculous.
The only pattern that I found looked too complicated for my sewing skills, so I decided to wing it. I picked up a rabbit accessories pack from Goodwill that included ears, a tail, and a bow tie (?). I then just needed to sew the jumpsuit. I took some very soft velour and set to work.
Elizabeth thinks it turned out really well.
Unfortunately she didn’t want me to sew on the tail (instead opting to keep the tail on the elastic band wrapped around her waist).
Now we need to paint on some whiskers and a nose, find our candy basket, and get out into the rain for some trick or treating tonight!
