generic witch costume, which is actually going to be given to my niece for her bitty baby. Then I wasn't feeling well and in order for me not to go to sleep too early (I'm talking 5pm) I decided to finally try making the semi-no sew tutu. Instantly we fell in love with the first one for my youngest and then my oldest needed one too. She loves spiders and so we used the spider lace/tulle stuff for hers instead of the stars.
For BOTH tops I used Kirsten's party dress top, which you can print for FREE here (agplaythings.com). I started to make the top the afternoon after I finished the spider tutu, but then I messed up making them too small and had to re-make the pattern longer and a little wider.I added about one inch to the bottom and a 1/8 of an inch all the way around (which also will help for hemming because I notice these patterns run a little tight)
FOR SPIDER WITCH
Cut spider fabric (using Kirsten's sleeve pattern- normal size) Sew bottom pieces together, then sew to top. Add a bow to the top of the corset, sew in place.
FOR GIRLY WITCH
BEFORE you sew the back of the shirt to the front of the shirt, hem the outside of the sleeves up, then sew the front to the back. Add ribbon to the top of the sleeves, tie closed. Hide a few stitches in the bow to help it prevent itself from untying. Add a bow to the top of the corset, sew in place.
