My fiance and I went as Sonny and Cher this year! But with a small twist, I was Sonny and he was Cher! It was awesome! I got a lot of compliments on his outfit and mine.
Here's my inspiration photos:
And here's us together!
And Full bodies of us each:
I made his dress from scratch, altering the African Dress pattern at Burda Style:http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/the-african-dress
And I also altered my vest from the Anthony Vest pattern at Burda Style:http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/antony-vest
; you can see I had some troubles with the vest and the dress. My guy lives 2 hours away so I wasn't able to fit it on him more than once. As for my vest, I first didn't make the front long enough (the first extra seam on the bottom) and then while I was pressing the seams, I melted the shoulder
(the upper second seam) But nobody at my party seamed to notice! I bought and altered my pants and bought the shirt as is!
I also ran into Sonny wig troubles, was unwilling to pay for his wig and attempted to alter my own and just DESTROYED the thing, so my own hair had to do!
