My costume this year was inspired by this post, which is so amazing! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357281.0
I've never made clothing before, except for aprons. I made my own pattern for the bolero and I used a tutorial for the circle skirt. Everything else I just kinda made up as I went! I originally had plans to make a corset but that didn't pan out too well. So please note that part is NOT made by me!
I lined it:
The collar: (I ended up adding another layer of lace to this - no pic)
Lace "glovelets" ... these took sooo long!
My cigarette box, the lining is leopard although you can't see that
Difficult to see the fringe at the bottom also
Bitch fabric (Pleather?) I made the skirt out of:
Trim on the skirt ... 5 yards of it!
Obligatory twirl shot!
There were so many incredible entries this year! SOOOO many! So much talent!
