Welcome to the last scavenger hunt of giveaway week! Or should that be the last giveaway of scavenger hunt week? Either way there is a fantastic prize to win from a fantastic shop–Made by Rae. Some of my most well-worn patterns are Made by Rae. When you find a pattern that works–for you to sew, for your kids to wear–you go back to it again and again. Made by Rae patterns just work, all the time! They are simple, easily customizable, and fit well. What more do you need?
Keeping with this season’s theme, DISGUISE, I picked 4 of Rae’s patterns and looked around to see what costumes people made with them. And wowwy wow wow! There are so many costumes out there made with Made by Rae patterns! Who knew a tunic could turn you into a swordsman or a simple pants pattern could magically transform you into prince charming? There are lots of disguises hiding in these staple patterns.
All the disguises pictured above started with the Flashback Skinny Tee pattern. The sewers used fleece, jersey, dad’s old tee shirts; they painted and stenciled; they played with colors and pattern. And look! It’s like a virtual Halloween parade right here on KCW! Give me two patterns, Rae’s flashback tee and Liesl’s cozy winter hat, and I will give you an awesome costume!
I guess that would be a costume without pants! Luckily Rae’s got us covered in the pants department too. Elastic pants are a staple in my household and even more so when it come to dress up. There is no time to fuss with zippers and snaps when you have to be the Dark Lord RIGHT NOW! So if your kids are lacking in the pants department, whip up a few Parsley Pants and they will be happy little campers –or cowboys or firemen or time travelers, even.
Sometimes you just need to make one thing and be done. The Geranium Dress is the one pattern you need for all your girl’s princess and fairy and Studio Ghibli dreams to come true.
Of all the Made by Rae patterns-turned-into-costumes, Inigo Montoya (in the bottom right corner) has to be my very favorite. I crack up every time I see Jessica’s little girl dressed up as the intrepid sword fighter in The Princess Bride. She really looks like she’s about to say, “My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!” Of course the Charlie Tunic works for less sinister characters as well. Just look at that sweet Mini Mouse!
All of these patterns (and more!) can be yours! Play along with our little scavenger hunt and you will be entered to win any 5 patterns you choose from Made by Rae’s shop.
