Description

Halloween costume I made from thrift store finds. A black vevet jump suit and childs dress.
I used an iron to “draw” feathers onto the velvet then appliqued velvet feathers onto it as well.
I added around 300 beads to it to give it some shimmer.

Material Notes

Rayon velvet and tulle.

Intermediate

    Thank you everyone for the lovely comments. :) I love to take discards or thrifted finds and give them new life! I hate waste of every sort. I think it only requires a little imagination and work turn anything into something useful!

    And a girl can NEVER have too many sequins and/or beads. Plus… feathers? AWESOME.
