New Orleans, Lou...
As soon as I saw Rifka’s Felicity Fox dress, I knew what I wanted to be for Halloween. For my dress, I started with the coffee date dress pattern, but ended up changing it significantly to fit my small bust. This is my first dress from scratch, so I’m happy with the outcome, even though I had to add some bows in the back to cover my wonky zipper work. I made a little apple and leaf stamp and stamped the pattern after it was all sewn. For Mr Fox, I cut down an existing vintage jacket to make it double breasted and made some quick pants from similar corduroy I found. Notice the wheat in his pocket! Also, you can’t see in the photo, but his buttons are wooden with a burned in tree pattern. This is my favorite Halloween costume ever!
**update: I now have an improved version of the fox mask for sale in my Etsy shop (Spirit Parade), for any interested parties!
