For Halloween this year, I will be a giant-sized Smurfette. I am making the costume in stages and will ultimately have a “bodysuit” made in blue lycra/spandex, a white dress, hat, shoe covers and blue gloves. Here are the pants with an elastic waist.
Very quick project – the only thing is that I took them in a bit more than my ‘practice tights’ because of the amount of stretch to get them to fit closer to the body.
