This year Emma decided she wanted to be a shark. But not a plain, old shark "suit"; a girl shark with "teeth and a dress." As a side note, don't ever let anyone tell you that small children are indecisive, they know exactly what they want, especially when it comes to their Halloween costumes. So, a girl shark dress and hood with teeth it shall be!
During the month of October, I play the role of the Costume Fairy.
My idea was to use make a simple pillowcase dress using grey satin, with a white satin stomach and jagged teeth along the hemline. The dress came together really quickly, the most time consuming part was sewing all the triangular "teeth".
I used a bright pink ribbon through the neckline of the dress, so that everyone would clearly see she's a girl shark.
For the shark's head, I used a basic hood pattern, added a fin on the top, eyes on either side of the head, and teeth around the front opening.
Once I had fit it to Emma's head, I added snaps to the bottom corners to help keep it in place. It was a little big and satin is very slippery.
Cue the theme music to "Jaws."
My all-time favorite line,"I think you're going to need a bigger boat!"
