Since I started sewing five years ago, I have been promising to myself to sew my own costume. However, every year I found myself too busy by school works, and had to improvise some funny makeup in the last minute.
This year, I started planning really early so that I won’t get stuck again. Of course I finished sewing on the night before I needed to wear the costume, but hey, I did finish on time! Now I can proudly declare:
Finally, for the first time in five years, I have a real costume!
I used Simplicity 5395 for the skirt, and changed a bit the following tutorial for the bonnet:
The apron is my grandmother’s gift. She gave it to me at the age of 9 or so for a costume.
The pics are not so great, but I guess you can’t expect for more when you’re taking them 2 minutes before you’re out for a party, right..?
This collection will make you shine in front of the camera!
