This is my first time doing a costume..
I didn't try to redo any queen of hearts outfits online..since i kinda wanted it to be obvious that I made it (good thing or bad thing?)

I took a red shirt I had laying around, cut a strip off (for a shoulder strap), and then took the rest and made a fake corset...
Then, I took a white one, cut off one sleeve/shoulder and added the shoulder strap...

The skirt was originally too long, so I cut it shorter, darted it, added a zipper..and then added this handkerchief (or whatever) to it (the hearts)

ANYWAY...here's my version of it so far  Smiley
(sorry for the blurry-ness)

The skirt

Here's a closer view of the hearts

I spent a total of $10 making this (for just the skirt)..so I hope it doesn't look THAT cheap  Undecided

I'm currently looking for a tiara, so that's all set..BUT..I wanna add hearts to the shirt (or corset?)...how big/small should it be, and how many?  Grin

Thanks for looking!
