San Antonio, Tex...
I used Batman’s classic costume (The Adventures of Batman, 1969) as inspiration for this outfit
grey tank, yellow utility belt, blue bat cape.
the skirt is a simple elastic band circle skirt made with Batman fabric, of course :)
I couldn’t find any colored elastic, so I dyed the elastic yellow at home and it turned out great.
the bat wings/cape I made from a tutorial I found on the web.
I used rayon instead of spandex though.
I just hemmed around the edges so it doesn’t fray
I had enough scraps to made a matching headband too
grey tank – store bought
3 yards Batman fabric
3 inch white elastic (dyed yellow)
matching thread for both
2 yards blue rayon fabric
