Can you believe how fast summer went? I cannot; it went too quickly for me. I really had a lot of fun with the kids this summer and I really cannot believe my son is now off to kindergarten this year. Where has the time gone? Now that we are mid August, it is time to start thinking about Halloween! We love Halloween in our house! In fact, when I showed Baby Girl her new shirt this morning Made with Little Lady Bug Halloween Bokeh fabric, she said, “Me wear it!” Even after the pictures she insisted on wearing it to the gym. Everyone loved it!
The fabric is black with orange pumpkins and little sparkle bokehs. Its perfect for little girls. Sometimes is difficult to find Halloween fabric for girls. Many times there are only boy options. I made Baby Girl a Spice Cake top by Patterns for Pirates. The sleeves are an orange metallic knit I had in my fabric stash. I believe I bought it from Miss Nancy on Etsy. My husband always tries to have me get rid of my stash, but you never know when you might need the fabric.
Do these two fabrics not look like they were meant to go together? I may have to make a matching Pumpkin Spice Dolman for myself! Because you know, we like to match! Let us also talk about this beautiful weather. June was so hot there was nothing to do outside but swim in a pool, now in August is having some beautiful weather. She would have been miserable in this outfit in June, but today she was fine, at least in the morning.
It was so gorgeous this morning Baby Girl and I played outside for a couple hours after Little Dude went off to school. We miss him lots during the day. Only a couple more hours till he is home :)! I know some parents are excited to send their schools off to school, but I miss Little Dude, he really is a joy to be around. He is also an amazing big brother. I thought Baby Girl would be distraught during the day without him, however she seems to be enjoying the one on one time with Mommy. 🙂 Well most of the time. She does not always enjoy me taking pictures of her….
Just look at that face!! 2 going on 13 right there!! I love her little attitude. This girls knows what she wants and what she does not want. Instead of posing for the camera I find, when I just let her play, I get the better photos. The staged sessions do not work well with her. I do end up with a lot of back pictures though, but you want to see the back of the outfit as well, right?
Love this outfit! I already have a pair of matching pants to hers, now I need to make myself the matching top. Now I did not get completely left out. I did have some fun ombre damask Halloween fabric for myself!
The fabric is called Demon Damask. I am wearing an orange shirt, so it reflected a little orange onto the fabric. The fabric is a brown/gold color. I used the Capri length Patterns for Pirates Peg Leg Pattern. They also have a gold spider web fabric I must have for Little dude.
