With Halloween only a few weeks away, it’s time to start working on your costumes! This week Leanne and I shared four different Halloween costumes you could make with the tutorials we teach in The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sewing. Did you catch them all?

We used the A-line skirt pattern and instructions from our Beginner’s Course to make a darling Tinkerbell and Mary Poppins costume, and the shift dress pattern and instructions from our Intermediate Course to make a killer Grecian Goddess and Kate Middleton costume. And then for each costume, we included an extra bonus tutorial on our blogs to create the accessories that will complete your costume.

    I love all of these costumes so much! I think Kate Middleton was probably my all time favorite but it’s so hard to choose!
