Some things I did sew:
I turned a sheet into something that really still resembles a sheet:
|if you are thinking"wow, what nice sleeves" know that there is no elastic there|
i literally just put hair elastics around my wrists
if you are thinking, "wow, nice face" i am trying to look spooky okay
|this is me looking embarrassed to be wearing a sheet in public |
not at a toga party and like a month before halloween
This was for a banned books costume party. I will purchase a burda online pattern* for anyone who can recognize the character I am dressed as! Bonus internet points for the book and author!
*seriously I will. I will spend up to $10 and email you the crazy print-and-tape pattern of your choice. I think this is possible. This contest is not open to my mom, sorry mom.
Update! Ashley at Craft Sanctuary guessed correctly that I am the girl from The Green Ribbon, by Alvin Schwartz, whose book "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" was the MOST banned book 1990-1999!
and I made two
And one in grey flannel (technically I made this ages ago, from the bottom half of this dress/saga), which I paired with some stuff I already had in my closet for a rawther good Eloise costume.
|i also got a legitimate compliment on my outfit|
from someone who didn't know i was in a costume
I also pulled out my Angelina Ballerina tutu/tail and ears from last year's Halloween party . I would wear this every day.
So there you have it! I have been sewing, but only costumes. Any guesses who I am dressed as wrapped up in my sheet?
I have another post planned(!!), so keep your eyes on your feed readers!
