Nurse Costume

We have had a year full of Doctor visits.  They have not been very fun.  So to my surprise, when I asked my 3 year old what she wanted to be this year for halloween she said a DOCTOR! 
Really, I said.  Are you sure???
(Thank goodness I had seen this post a while back.) 

I tweeked it a little by adding the ruffles to the top and the red felt has glitter on it.
I think it adds a little girlie touch to it.
I also made a very simple felt doctor bag to hold all of those doctor tools and that goes with the costume
but can also be used as the goodie bag for trick or treating.  SUPER!!
This nurse has been hard at work, it's been great for dress-up.
We are well taken care of around our house with a live in doctor....or nurse that is :)

that is awesome! I love all of your ideas! :) I kind of dropped off the face of blog land for a while, and actually made a new blog (and am ditching my old ones) and now that I'm back I want to let you know that I am giving you an award tomorrow (Sat) on my blog. So come visit tomorrow and take a look. :)

Meg said...

This is too cute! I love this idea. And, it looks pretty easy to make. Maybe I could convince my own daughter to try this out for Halloween? :)-

Really cute! Love the dual-purpose tote bag to match!

Melissa said...

That turned out really sweet. And the dual purpose bag is really ingenious.

How creative..I just am fizzing with creative juice now. I was struggling with the idea of making my boys a dress up trunk and now I can see the "aprons" flowing. So much quicker and they won't outgrow them as easily. Fantastic inspriation. Thanks.

I love the bright colors on this costume, it came out perfect! So professional looking, much better than crappy bagged costumes!

My barely 2-year-old daughter broke her leg last month, so after an ER visit, three visits to the orthopedist, and one regularly-scheduled visit to her pediatrician, we've decided to make her a nurse/doctor for Halloween. I'm copying your apron and adding "scrubs". I bought a blue men's shirt at a thrift store instead of fabric from the fabric store. Thanks!
