Description

A few months ago I found a dress at Salvation Army made from incredible stretchy grass-print fabric. In all honesty, the dress was disgusting, but I had to have the fabric. It’s been sitting in my fabric crate ever since because I haven’t known what to do with it. It’s so bright that I had to do something flashy, so this year I decided to dress up as a lawn flamingo in a bright green trailer park lawn. I stuffed the flamingo’s neck and head with some fabric from some old sweatpants and made the body with lace, satin and polyester ruffles. I purchased the tutu already made, but I added some lace to the undersides of the ruffles. Then I put a little bit of a sixties spin on it with the hat, gloves, makeup, and miniskirt. All the fabrics I used were thrifted. Sorry that the picture’s a little blurry, I was rushing out the door!

Material Notes

Stretchy lawn print (something acrylic I think), stretchy pink polyester, lace ruffles from a curtain
