This homemade costume for girls entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Catherine, the 'Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas' costume creator:

This is my daughter. She is 7 and she really wanted to be Sally this year. She didn't like the bright colors used to make the store bought costumes, so she asked me to make one with the more muted color scheme from the movie. First I made a tank dress as a base using muslin. Then I just drew the patchwork outline as a guide on the muslin. I then took all the different colored fabric, traced cut and pieced it all together. I attached the patches using heat bond. All the patterns were hand drawn using a fabric pen. Lastly, I used embroidery floss to add the faux stitching on all the seams. I purchased the wig. Unfortunately I couldn't find a dark auburn in a child's size, so the bright red had to make do. I just used store bought creme makeup and blended it for the blue-gray skin color. For the face sitching, I used liquid eyeline.

How did you add the sleeves? Love this!

The sleeves were added the way any sleeves are added to a tank style dress. Pin together with right sides facing and sew 1/4 in seam
