Happy Halloween

If you follow me on Twitter, you know by now that my boys decided to go as Imagination Movers (a show on Disney). Jack wanted to go as Mover Rich (he's a drummer, and dark haired, and his favorite). Hemi wanted to go as Mover Dave (he plays bass, and is laid back like Hemi, but also wears a red hat). I scoured the internet for costumes, and found the only ones I could find were on the Mover website, and were $100 each! That was WELL out our price range.

So, I looked through stores to see if I could find regular clothes that could be transformed into Mover jumpsuits. No luck there either.

I was stuck.

I thought about sewing outfits, but was nervous about making a shirt with a collar. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to create an outfit good enough to pass for Mover jumpsuits. I studied collars on shirts, and then made a prototype. It worked! So I decided I would try my hand at it.

It was not easy, especially with no pattern, but I think they turned out great (not perfect, but great!)!
