I made this costume for Mardi Gras. I had to change the neck ruffle as it didn’t have the wave effect I wanted. I also made 2 extra pompoms that I fixed on a pair of trainers.
white cotton, white tulle net, black satin bias, black wool for the pompoms
(and LOADS of white face paint and a black eyeliner to draw a tear on the cheek)
Simplicity pattern 9800, the only one I found with a Pierrot costume! (even better, in the same pattern, there is also a clown and Arlequin)
What do you think of these summery styles?
