Kids' Costumes

The kids' costumes have been completed! 
My daughter's overdress turned out like this:
Because the dress still had the zipper in the back, I sewed the bow closed in the front.
I found an awesome blouse in her closet.  Unfortunately, it was too long to be just a blouse, and too short to be used as a chemise. 
I bought some plain white muslin and fashioned a skirt that I sewed to the blouse, above the ruffled part. 
The result?  A chemise that can be turned back into a cute blouse with a simple rip of a seam! 
Here are both pieces together:
Being modeled by my cuties:
