I took a little kids costume and turned it into this cute little ensemble. I took it apart and finished all the edges. I added pleated faux patent leather cap sleeves, Faux patent leather to front and to back with a bow and extra faux patent leather fluff to back. The mask I switched out the elastic for lace. I turned the sleeves into arm gloves with a black patent bow at the top. It was my own creation. I feel I could have done slightly better but time was a constraint. This was my first sewing project. my dress form is slightly too big for the top. So I had to alter the back to get it on the dress form. When I wear it again I am going to make a cool cape for it.
