I’ve been working on my costume for a Halloween party on Saturday. I’m being River Song from Doctor Who, and I’m making a version of her khaki dress from “Day of the Moon.” (Here’s a picture: http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z82/ryottelora/RiverSong-DayOfTheMoon.jpg?t=1345221892 ) The skirt looked a bit too complicated and too full for my time and fabric allowances, so I decided to do an a-line skirt. The issue with this is that my zipper isn’t long enough to go all the way from my chest to my hips, and I already sewed it to the top, and now I’m stuck with a skirt that doesn’t fit over my hips! Given time, I could go out and buy a new zipper or some stretchy fabric to sneak a panel in the side, but there’s just no way. All I have is scraps of the (decidedly NOT stretchy) dress fabric. Anyone have any solutions?
