One week and 63 yards of black tulle later, I have a petticoat of DOOM to go under my Halloween costume! And the best part is that I can use it by itself for other costumes!

I had made this ballgown for an anime convention back in June but I never got to wear it because I didn't go to the convention. So I decided to just turn it into a "elegant vampire" costume. I still need to finish the dress but I have the teeth and everything.

Yeah I still can't believe it took that much. I started by making and a-line skirt and marked where I wanted the tiers to go (there's 5 in total). And then I started with the bottom tier and took two strips of tulle and folded them in half and placed it under the presser foot as I went along. It was VERY time consuming and frustrating and when I got to the third tier the rest of it started to get in the way so I had to shift it every couple of inches.

HOLY CRAP!  I just made my first petti the the other day for my Halloween costume, but it was normal, run of the mill petti... You have some major patience!  Way to go!

Good lord, good lord! When I saw the thumbnail, I'll admit I said to myself "What's she going to halloween as... a toilet roll cosy?!" I was convinced you were going to be one of those crocheted doll toilet roll cosies that old women have perched atop their cisterns.

My darling, I am ever jealous of your 63 yard petticoat. I want one for my own.
