I am a petite redhead with short hair. I was born in 1988, but my favorite movies involve the Brat Pack. I look awesome in pink. Who else am I going to be for Halloween other than Molly Ringwald?

I got the patterns for my shirt and skirt off of the 1980's section on www.momspatterns.com. I didn't end up actually making either of the pieces until Halloween night, and finished about 2 hours before the party I was going to started. I got the boots and belt at Goodwill. The most expensive part of the costume was the fabric. I bought it on sale at JoAnn's, but I was trying to get as close to the original costume as possible. It ended up being about $40 in total. All in all, the whole costume cost me about $50, which isn't bad if you compare whole costumes complete with accessories at places like Party City.


Me. As Molly Ringwald.

My best friend and I at the party. She was the Mexican Daisy Duke.

A screen shot from the movie for comparison.

How did I do?
