So this is my first challenge, but not the first Halloween costume I've made!  

The great thing about this costume is that it is made from all recycled materials!  No kidding.  The apron/skirt was made from a rescued 80's prom dress from the thrift store, and the corset/top was made from some vinyl in the bulk fabric bin (also from thrift store).  Gloves were from an old tshirt.

Even the feather came from the peacock that lives in my front yard!

I didn't use any patterns, I just kind made stuff up.

The back of the skirt is the coolest part, this is probably the most awesome skirt I've made in my entire skirt-making career.





Thanks for looking!

Me too! Although i might make mine out of something less prom-y and more flowery. It's a kick-*ss design though. I can see it going very nicely in several types of wardrobes as everyday stuff.

That is pretty frigging adorable. Something store-bought would look much cheaper, that looks like it should be on stage. Grin
