My daughter wanted to be a cowgirl this Halloween.  An image popped into my head and I went for it!  The jeans, shirt, and boots were already in her wardrobe.  I snatched up a cowboy hat for about $5.00, a bandanna for under $1.00 and snagged a used men's suede shirt from eBay....

Using one of her shirts, I created a template for the vest.  Did some "smart" cutting to maximize everything that was already finished on the shirt and........

Total Cost?  $13 for the entire costume! 

If you want to see details on how I made the vest, check out my tutorial here: http://sewplicity.blogspot.com/2012/10/upcycle-it-mens-suede-shirt-to.html

Thanks for looking!  Happy Halloween!!!!

Very cute. She looks great.

But if the time-locks broken, then everything is coming through, not just the Daleks, but the Skaro Degradations, the Horde of Travesties, the Nightmare Child, the Could-Have-Been king with his army of meanwhile and never-weres, the war turning to hell.  ~The Doctor

She looks great! I love taking old leather and suede items and making them something new and awesome. A suede men's shirt just seems like such a bad idea but sure worked out for you!

Craft till it hurts.
