Singin’ in the Rain is probably my absolute all-time favorite movie, and the Broadway Melody dream sequence is one of my favorite scenes. So this year, I decided to be Cyd Charisse’s “lady in green” character for Halloween (and my husband was Gene Kelly’s character).
I’m not one to show much skin, so I definitely made the dress somewhat more modest so that I would actually leave the house. I also have a considerably different body shape than the beautiful Cyd Charisse, so some changes were made to have the result more flattering for my shape. Unfortunately, that means it couldn’t be completely accurate.
This was my first draping project ever and I’m quite happy with the result!!
