It started with a pretty dress being covered in fake blood for Halloween which wouldn’t wash off. I decided to make use of the remaining stained-less material which led me to making a pair of pyjama shorts. The construction wasn’t difficult at all since I cut off the bottom of the dress and simply refashioned it to create the pants. I added a dark blue velvet ribbon to keep the shorts on my waist. To add a more personal touch I embroidered an anchor on the right pant-leg.
