BERNINA Halloween 2011- Patron Silver

I made a costume of my favorite tequila- Patron Silver!

Material Notes

I used grey felt as the base, the label was traced on silver lame with a sharpie marker using a light table (actually a glass coffee table with a lamp underneath) and then the top layer is grey sheer charmuse. Sewing the 3 layers together made it look like clear glass and like a stiff box shape without actually being stiff. The neck tie is green polyester. The hat is made from left over pieces of my other costume, the mel cone, stuffed with poly fill to resemble the cork, with an elastic band to hold it on my head!

    Love this!!! Really want to do it this year’s Halloween. I have never saw stuff in my life and need to ask someone to do it? Can I have more photos ? I can be reached on maclovesmac@gmail.com And how did you print the label on the second layer ? What does “traced” mean ?

    I have checked every single products at amazon but none of them are good as yours…

    I’m Mac, you are …? Cheers

    Thank you both! I have just emailed burdastyle because it appears that my costume is not in the contest! :(
