I used Simplicity Pattern #0516 to make this costume! It is made of clearance fabrics!! Yay! Currently I am working on a king Louis XVI costume for my boyfriend...so I will show you that when I am done!
The rough draft /planning stage...
I liked the idea of these ready-made costumes I saw on ebay
I watched this movie for inspiration
Here is the progress of making it (sorry it is so small..this was from my blog)
And here is the finished dress!
As for accessories ...
got this at Halloween USA
got these thigh highs to go with it! Love the little bows up the back seam!
petticoat (from ebay)
bought this a long time ago at an antique shop
and I plan to wear my Irregular Choice shoes!
*edited to add more pictures* PS Thank you everyone for the nice comments!
I had been admiring this hoodie dress which is sold through intermixonline.com and patriciafield.com for almost $200. It turned out to be pretty easy to make! I just altered a hoodie pattern I had to make it longer, changed the sleeves to short, puff sleeves, and I free hand drew the front panal which is adorned with gold anchor buttons.
Edited to say: Thank you!! You are all so sweet!!!!
