I've been costuming like crazy since January and just finished this "Sexy" this weekend.  The dress I made to use for another costume and realized it was a familiar shade of blue.  I bought a white corset, since it was cheaper than making my own (and faster).  I had some black ribbon trim and pleated satin trim in my stash that I used to accent the corset to look like the windows of the TARDIS.  I took 3" wide grosgrain ribbon and hand painted on the POLICE BOX info like a sash.  My headpiece is from the costume the dress is intended for, but worked double duty here too.

I'll post in a few weeks the costume that the dress is for (making the corset for that one still).

Thanks!  It only took a weekend to complete Cheesy  It was mostly done in the first day, but I hate hemming/hand sewing, so that waited until the next day.
