This year I decided I'd join the circus for Halloween!



I made the dress...


...from my own pattern and lined it:

I love how the lining looks old and gauzy. I was fortunate to find it and the dress fabric at the thrift store.

At first, I wore a store-bought black cardigan underneath the dress...


...but after the outing to the zoo on costume weekend, I snipped some fishnet, tape-style yarn apart and sewed the netting together to make "sleeves":



I must remember this for future projects. I totally recommend it!

Of course, I had to make a popcorn bag to go with it all:

(A tutorial on this is coming here.)
I love popcorn!


Thank you so much for looking!
I had so much fun with the circus.

You found some great circus-y material to make that outfit. Your little popcorn bag is awesome!
