This morning we woke up to it raining. Such a wonderful thing to see in the valley of the sun. Our weather has also finally officially become fall like.
Yesterday after work I started on K's Halloween costume (Butterick pattern 4377). I got the cape & lining cut out. Tonight I will cut out the dress. The cape is a chocolate brown crushed panne velvet fabric with an cream lining and the dress will be turquoise crushed panne velvet fabric. Joann's had the crushed panne velvet on sale for $2.99 & since this dress & cape today a huge amount of fabric, it was the only way I was going to buy it. Total cost without my time for the fabric, lining, thread & zipper $90. My oldest daughter paid $150 for just an unlined cape at the renaissance festival in AZ last spring. Maybe I will make her one too.
