Hey everybody!

This year, I decided to dress up as a "desperate-50's-housewife" for halloween.
Since I'm totally into all this vintage-clothing stuff (my secret dream is to walk
around the house in this apron all-day-long Cheesy), it wasn't really hard to decide
which costume I should pick for the occasion.

It was also a really really cheap costume!
The jewellery, the cardigan, the shoes, the skirt and
the white t-shirt were things I already had in my closet.
(The skirt is also made by me. You can see it here -->
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=341217.msg3958196#msg3958196 )

So I only needed a cute apron.
I saw a youtube-tutorial on how to make an apron
out of an old teatowel (am I allowed to share the link
of this video here?). It was so quick and easy!
After I finished the basic apron, I added some lace to the
sides to give it a cuter look.
Combined with a big  bow in my hair (also DIY-Project. I simply
used the leftover fabric of my skirt)
and some victory rolls -> tadaa!

I hope you guys like it,too! Thanks for reading Smiley

You look great! awesome job!
oh, and I've seen youtube links in topics here before, but I'm not sure if it's okay to post them according to Craftster.
