Riddle: Why don´t you see Penguins in Britain?
It's time for my penguin costume series to begin. As a reminder, I'm making penguin costumes for my twin 2 year old nieces for halloween.
The smallest size of the pattern was still too big for them , so I redrafted it one more size smaller in an attempt to make it the right size. Then, of course, I cut out the pieces. I was going to just do one costume at a time but I hate cutting so much I cut out all the pieces at once just to get it over with. I was then going to put the costumes together one at a time, but once I realized I was going to need to change the thread color multiple times (white and black) I decided to do them in parallel. It's working out quite nicely.
I fear, despite my efforts to make the pattern a size smaller, that they are still going to be too big for the girls - even if they wear clothes underneath them. I've contemplated taking in more at the seam but I'm more afraid of making it too small than I am of leaving it too big. At least if it's too big then they could potentially wear it next year, or my sister could do a little pinning and they could still wear them this year. I wish they lived closer so that we could have a "fitting". :)
