This costume was the real mccoy for me, because it consisted not only of a dress, but also a cape and little bloomers. whew! Go big or go home I guess! (ps, this is Autie, not Jen…the one that is not a master pattern maker or seamstress)
(never mind the extremely long ribbon on her cape…this was the first official dress rehearsal, and I didn’t bring scissors with me when I took pics!)
The dress was my favorite part! I got to use a couple of trims that I had in my stash (I love dipping into my stash for fun projects!) The pre-ruffled eye let, the vintage German-looking trim and the faux-corset were fun little additions to a regular dress.
