Last summer I had only a few days to make a fancy dress costume for a party in Clapham. So I cheated a little and used an old bridesmaid dress as a base and made a pinafore and under skirt to go with it. I only had to buy some lace, green food dye and a small glass bottle. The rest of it was made up of an old sheet.
gathered lace, old bridesmaid dress, an old sheet, glass bottle with tag.
