I used Butterick 5882 to make this dress.  When I saw it, it screamed out Wonder Woman to me.  The accent piece on the top was very reminiscent of the wings on WW's bodice.  I found the starry fabric at a little place in the NYC garment district.  The red and yellow fabrics I had in my stash from other projects.  The lining was just a blue cotton broadcloth.  I had a petticoat in my costume stash and wore it under the skirt for added volume, as it hangs much better that way.

I put it together with the sole purpose of wearing it for Independence Day celebrations.  It was a hit at the two parties I went to Cheesy  When it got colder that evening, I wore a simple white cardigan with it.

I love this idea, I think this is a great Halloween alternative costume for those who work places that frown on full costumes!
