Needlework Tuesday - Halloween Costume
She bought a great piece of sweater knit fabric and I sewed the body and attached a few strips of velcro on the front. Niece used many sheets of craft foam and cut out and decorated all the 'accessory' pieces. Oh yes, I also made the tiny handbag to carry a cell phone and camera. There is a pocket on the back of the costume to store the extra face pieces.
Being modelled are ourfavourite glasses, we call them the 'Dame Edna' glasses and added a row of rhinestones across the top and a few more in those swooping corners. Note that there is also a rhinestone on the right front upper tooth. Gotta have that bling.
Simplicity website and this pattern isn't listed any longer. There are dozens of other fun ones available.
