I used part of a pattern from a previous year's costume to make the vest and the gathered, elastic top. the skirt was really a trial-and-error process, as I didn't use a pattern and found out the hard way that I needed a zipper to make it fit right. I wore it with big black wings on Saturday night.

Here's the front. I tacked on some leftover lace over the yoke of the skirt and leftover mesh/netting over the rest of it to give it a more rough look.

Here's a shot of the arm detail. I forgot the pattern for the blouse left the arms open so I went back and tacked a criss-cross design of ribbon over it.

And here's a shot of the back. I had leftover lace on the ends when I tacked it to the yoke, but I really liked how it looked so I left it on.

thanks for looking! Smiley
