11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / XL Men's T-Shirt to 1920's dress - 1st recon ever! on: January 14, 2008 07:58:56 AM
This is my first recon project  Grin . I'm not very good at sewing as I am kind of impatient  Undecided .

This dress was made as a costume for a "murder & mystery" set in 1922.



  • I took 2 XL Men's T-Shirts (I wear M or L), cut off a little bit of the bottom part of the top t-shirt and sewed-on the bottom part of the second shirt.
  • I did a V-neck (it's not very good, so it looks like a round-neck...).
  • I added a belt with spangles (? the little glittery thingies).
  • I also pinched the sides from the armholes to the belt and the back all the way from the top to the belt.
  • I took a strip of the second shirt to do the headband and added a flower (I wanted feathers, but I couldn't find any in the short amount of time I had to make this).

I completed the look with a "chignon", dark lipstick, pearl necklaces and a "cigarette holder" (pencil).
