Wow. There must have been a pattern for that clown costume, because my mother sewed one for me that was exactly like yours - same hat, pom poms, and collar. Of course, I wore mine before you were born. I used to imagine how the costume might easily be altered for a "fair maiden."
I'm sure it was a common pattern. My mother wasn't creative or talented, just well-intentioned toward her kids.
I'm pretty sure there is a picture somewhere of me dressed in that costume (from around 1969). You are adorable!
Aww, you were the cutest little clown! I bet you got a ton of candy that Halloween!-AshleyLe Stylo Rouge
I'm pretty sure my first Halloween was a white and baby blue clown costume. I wish i could share pics in a comment because I am UnHappy! in the picture. Mostly about the hat.Also hilarious because I LOVE dressing up and always have.
Me, too. I'd love to see a picture of you in that costume.
My brother was a clown a few Halloweens. I always wanted to be a cheerleader, although looking back I wish I had chosen a scary clown at least once.
You are the cutest clown I've ever seen!
This is incredibly sweet and precious - not to mention fun, Ally. And naturally, as you might guess, as it pertains to Halloween, I adore it all the more.Just as I do the fact that your mom made your costume. The majority of the All Hallows' Eve ensembles I wore growing up were handmade by my mom or, as I got older, myself. The occasional accessory or set of inexpensive Halloween face paint makeup might be bought, but the rest was usually made at home and far from feeling like this was a negative, we adored it and the originality it afforded us.

Yay! And yes, handmade costumes are the best. I just started work on mine for this year -- Harley Quinn.
