Description

Halloween is by far the most fun holiday for me, and this year I chose to be Robin Hood for one green and brown wood-printed reason. I had found this Joel Dewberry fabric on sale during the summer and continued to stare at it longingly for a few months, afraid to cut anything since there was only one yard. Whatever I ended up making would not be sold, so it needed to be fantastic!

No pattern was used for any of this, so the process took a bit longer than usual.

Bodice and hood lined with muslin for stability, found ribbon pleated for a trim, the eyelets are all hand-stitched for that straight outa the woods look, created a plain brown babydoll dress to wear whenever I want, found some brown tights, knit a pouch for my gold, and found a roll of leather lace.

The bow and arrow were made by my good friend Jim and were a hit at Jack White’s party last night (he was an astronaut), BUT were not made for slowly pushing your way through a crowded venue so the arrow did not survive.
Oh well! Tonight is the annual pub crawl in my neighborhood so I will be biking around as robin hood, with a big bow, a camera, and lots of chocolate gold coins for the drunk people.

    Oh my good lord, I love this so much. It’s simple, but I think it might be one of my favourite Halloween costumes ever!
