Witch costumes
One of the most popular Halloween costumes for kids is the witch’s costume. Luckily, it’s also one of the simplest to create. You'll take two 31 by 20-inch fabric rectangles and sew them together. Make sure you leave an armhole on each side and an opening for the head and neck. In the neck area, you will sew a channel through which you’ll thread a piece of lace, ribbon, or string.
