Dear daughter just loves to wear gowns. And she wanted to be something “evil,” but she doesn’t seem to pull off evil very well. So when we fell in love with McCalls 6097, a fairly elaborate Victorian gown, it seemed like a good way to make a very elegant witch.
I made a few changes to the construction & design of the pattern. I fully lined the bodice, added hotfix crystals here and there.
The bustle and train detach from the skirt.
Petticoat of lime green taffeta – my own design.
And of course – a witch can’t get anywhere without her broom.
I made the hat from a separate pattern. Not sure of you can see the small raven perched on the hat.
Purple taffeta with velvet dots
Black taffeta with velvet dots
Lime green taffeta lines the sleeves and train.
