Halloween Kimono!

What do you get when you cross a wolf, sparrow, and a little imagination! My oldest daughter in her new Halloween Kimono! She loves anything Japanese and after watching "Forbidden Kingdom", she wanted to look like the wolf witch and the girl in the movie "Sparrow". So I put her hair up and painted her face with makeup. She looked so beautiful tonight and I had a very proud moment after making the Kimono and seeing her in it. The hardest part was cutting out the pieces and I didn't have the interfacing the pattern called for, so I had to improvise a little.
