I insist that 1920s era, The Great Gatsby style dresses would make excellent Halloween theme and or costume. It seems to be an ageless, timeless fashion; people love the style. Not only for grown-ups, but it can very well be a great choice of costume for kids, little girls or boys. Dress and necessary accessories all together would make wonderful Halloween costume for them, or for grow-ups for sure. Even matching masks can be found for the costume for those who would prefer having a Halloween costume with mask. The free spirit of the era and/or fashion style fits within the Halloween, I think.

As my regular followers know, I have already designed and posted a lot of Great Gatsby dresses for women -most of them area already sold and I keep sewing more- and one for little girls. Here is another one for little girls…

Halloween costume ideas for kids, little girls

Here is you are viewing my upcycled girls design Gatsby dress.The dress originally was white with pink lining ,more likely from 1980s – 1970s era. Made in USA tag makes me assume that I coffee-dyed this dress first of all , and this process is always given an aged , antique look . I fixed some of the falling apart layers of lace and removed cap sleeves. By adding this very pretty hand dyed in brown color vintage lace I created ” the look “. I, then, made a lace and beads front neck-less that is attached to shoulders area; looks and very cute ! The dress has a closure on the back .The dress has a low stretchy drop waist area and marked size 8 girls. Please double check the measurement !
