"The Dress" DIY Halloween Costume

Added Oct 30, 2015

Here it is, my finished Halloween costume! Remember that time at the beginning of the year when “The Dress” was blasted all over social media and the news, and people were debating over if the dress was black and blue or white and gold? Well I turned that phenomenon into my costume.

I used a thick jersey in blue and white and then black and gold lace as the trim. I drafted this dress based on our Knit Top and Dress Sloper, which was the perfect base pattern to use. I also documented my process of making this dress and you can see the drafting post here, and my first sewing post here, then my final reveal post here.

Excited to wear this tomorrow for Halloween! Which color did you see? I personally saw black and blue :)

Material Notes

Stretch mesh and thick double jersey as well as stretch lace trim.
