Ok - so I bought this uber-crappy costume about 5 years ago (back during the corporate days before kids) and recently dug it out of the "crap costumes" pile. It had no oomph and was obviously ill-fitting (you notice that its only a foot short of my feet
and gives me saggy boob syndrome), so what's a craftster to do? Fix it, of course.....but to only do it without spending any money......hmmmmmm......
So, I'm thinking "What has poof that is in my closet.......MY WEDDING DRESS!!" If only it fits.....IT DOES (barely
Woo hoo! After having hubby zip me up - I pull on the costume of doom....and this is what ya get.....not quite handmade.....but way better than spending more money on crap!
This is my "I'm on the cover of 80's romance novel" look
Thanks to dh for taking the crap pics so I had to take my own and the boy for his pirate sword
Let me know what ya think!
