There’s lots of talk on the Internet by now about easy-to-make Halloween costumes for kids, but not much for adults who like to sew. For those looking to join in on the dress up fun and DIY their own Halloween costume, I’ve rounded up five awesome off-beat costumes that would be a blast to wear trick-or-treating with the kiddos or to a costume party. None of them are super involved, so you still have time to sew one up in time for the big day!
