This year Dinah was Goldilocks for Halloween and the rest of us were the Bear family that she intrudes upon. I knew this would be a really cute and simple costume to create.
It consisted of a white blouse (already on hand) and a black dirndl type vest on top. To make the vest I drafted up the shape I wanted based on a vest we already had. It is double sided and has ribbon laced down the front. This was probably the most complicated piece I made.
For the bottom I made a circle skirt trimmed with eyelet that my grandma sent me from her old stash. (Under the skirt she wore a store bought tutu to give the skirt a bit more fullness.)
And little pantaloons trimmed with a wide eyelet.
And an apron with a pocket to store her spoon. Now she is ready to steal some porridge.
I also made her little Goldilocks curls. I actually bought a wig and snipped off the curls I wanted and glued them to barrettes under huge black bows I made. They turned out really cute, even it if it looked like her roots were showing!
For us bears, I made ear headbands for me and Papa Bear. I used felt and stitched them to little, brown headbands. Mine had a little bow.
I also made us some bear paws. For these I took $1 bin knit gloves and cut off the fingers. Then I glued brown minky/fur to the tops along with felt triangles (to be our claws).
I didn’t make Baby Bear’s costume (I found the coat at Carter’s), but she is too cute not to share.
Here we are!…Goldilocks and the Three Bears
