Description

Here is my Halloween costume for this year, based off the version so many may have seen on Craftster. I love the play of opposites in this.

    great job on this dress : my favorite is the outside zipper black on white!

    is it the exact pattern of the dress or did you modified the sleeves?

      I did modify the sleeves. The ones that go with that pattern are huge puff sleeves that are then gathered back to an arm band. I basically carved out a curve at the bottom of the pattern. Since the fabric I was working with was so stiff, it was able to just stay up without any further help.

    Love the exposed zipper especially. And the heart.
