Eskimo Girl

My oldest selected an Eskimo costume from a Halloween catalog and this was our reproduction (hopefully better quality).

I tweaked an Ottobre hooded sweater pattern. The fur trim is double sided so it's lovely & soft, but I had a brain lapse when adding the skirt trim, but at least I got my act in gear with the cuffs & hood trim, and this Minkee type fabric is very forgiving and masks my sloppy sewing!

My daughter selected the fabrics and ribbon, a lovely combination and she was delighted with the final result.... that's all that counts :-)
