First finished pieces of my Halloween Costume. THe hat was super quick and I modified it slightly. Pattern called for elastic under the chin, but I attatched a comb instead, and the band was supost to be wire mesh, and I didn’t want to work with it, so it’s the same color fabric as the pieces of the dress I cut out. I’m also not going to point out my mistakes on the jacket either.
Fake suade as a replacement for velvet, poly-cotton blend for the hat, also replaced elastic with a comb on the hat.
