Happy Halloween!

Happy halloween, fellow sewists!  I didn't get around to sewing a costume this year, and just ended up wearing my roller derby stuff (skates too!) to work on Friday.  So, I'm sharing last year's costume!

Last year I stumbled across some fantastic water droplet printed cotton, and since my job revolves around rain and water, I figured dressing up as Ms. Frizzle from the water cycle episode would be perfect.  I whipped up a dress, wore it over a white button-up, and made a school bus + Liz out of a kleenex box and some construction paper.

Unfortunately, not many people in my office got it...  Guess it's more of a generational thing than I thought!  Most of the younger people got it, but having to explain your costume is never fun.  Ahh well!  I'm holding on to the dress until I can think of something else to make with the fabric - maybe a pillow?  If you have any ideas please leave them in the comments!
