Bear, Delaware, ...
My Halloween costume, made mostly from thrifted or refashioned materials. The skirt was done without a pattern, and I drafted the top pattern from a shirt I already owned. And no, this isn’t my real hair color.
skirt: polyester satin (from thrifted pants), chiffon (dark blue), sparkle organza (recycled from unsuccessful dress), glitter fabric paint (to seal edges of sheer fabric). Top: stretch nylon (from thrifted skirt). Purchased wings, my brother’s boots.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
