Halloween Costumes

For Halloween this year I wore my Dirndl for the first time.  Jeff wore the Robin Hood Tunic that I made him earlier this year.  I added the apron for my dress the day of, because I thought it was too plain without one.  I simply took a rectangular piece of fabric and used 4 rows of gathering stitches to give it the classic dirndl look. 

It's too hard to see in the picture, but a wonderful friend also gave me an Edelweiss pin that I wore on my blouse.

Oh my goodness! I love it! You two look great! Your dress is so so cute. I want to see a picture of the pin up close too.
The Robin Hood Tunic looks perfect! It really looks like the real thing.
