I made my Halloween costume this year, and I went all out. I made the top, skirt, and gun holster. I was going to make a piece to hold the sword but ran out of time. I might still make it just to have; you never know when you need a costume. The top was from McCall’s M6285 and the bottom was Simplicity 3689. The collar and tie and gun holster had no pattern, so just free styled those. My mom gave me some great pointers.
Forgive me for the millions of photos; I had a fun photoshoot and had to share. I’m really proud of this project!
