Watch Out For Falling Houses

Baby sister was the Wicked Witch of the East. She has cousins that are all the same age, so we thought it would be fun if they were all different characters from the Wizard of Oz. I have always wanted to make the Wicked Witch of the East since all you ever see of her are her legs there is a lot to be left up to the imagination.

See what I mean what ever you want above the knees. Fluffy skirt, peasant blouse, and a corset.

Her skirt actually has 14 skirts. Each tulle layer has three skirts. When I layered them together it looked like a bruise so I then lined the tulle layers, under skirt over skirt and there you have it 14 skirts. I added the orange ruffle with my ruffler foot. Tucked the over skirt up with a red sparkle bow to match her shoes.

I made the blouse and the corset and then bought her hat. Her favorite color is orange after all, how could I just leave that hat at the store.

She developed the greatest witch cackle and worked it perfectly. I think that trick or treating was started for three year olds. They were the cutest running from house to house excited every time they got a piece of candy. Can't wait until next year.
