The Dog Witch

Costume full view

As you saw earlier, I made a witch costume for Minnie. It was loosely based off of Butterick 4885.

Costume skirt

Basically I used the pattern for the base. I shortened the length and added the skirt which was just two layered ruffles.

Costume neck ruffle

I also added a ruffle at the neckline instead of the collar.

Finally, I made a little hat. What is a witch without her hat?

Witch Hat front

The hat base was made with Timtex and then wrapped with fabric that was glue gunned down.

Witch Hat back

There’s a circle of the liner fabric (the whole costume was lined with purple china silk) on the base of the hat which holds the elastic in place.

Since I bought all the fabric on Sunday, everything was already on sale so the whole costume cost less than $10.
