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.

It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
