I always make my daughter’s costume for Halloween. It’s always been one of my favorite traditions. She finally pick something besides a fair this year. It was fun to make, even though the silver trim was a bit fussy. It asked for grommets for the ties holes on the over coat, but I made button holes instead, much easier. The inside of the sleeve I used the same fabric as the under dress. I added the netting to make the dress a bit more puffy. My family was really impressed. (Photos always get croped. :s)

    This is really awesome. The mix of colors and patterns really makes the costume, and it’s more original than most jester costumes I’ve seen.

    Cool costume! I used the same diamond black and white fabric on my costume. Check it out, I was a “Death Jester”.

    Great costume! Love the fabrics! My son(“NathanL” on burdastyle) used one of the same fabrics on his jester costume to. I like that you were creative and used buttonholes instead of the grommets and added netting for a desired look. Just really cool!
