For this year’s World Book Day (which is fast approaching) my little sister has decided to dress up as a female Sherlock Holmes. A kind of ‘Shirley’ Holmes if you a will. Naturally I offered to make the costume… and here’s my rough plan.
Dalek dress for halloween 2011.
I drafted a rough little plan/dress-pattern for one of those TARDIS dresses. This plan is for the middle dress from the illustration. I’m ignoring the black leggings and under-shirt for the moment. Also, I chose to make it out of cotton because that is usually the cheaper option and this is, after all, just a costume.
Harley Quinn costume I made back in halloween 2010.
Halloween is literally next week, definitely shouldn’t have left it this late to think about costume/s….
- cut out the pattern pieces
- trace and cut the pieces from the fabric
- sew up all darts
- sew together all wool crepe pieces
- make pockets from paisley and attach to wool crepe
- sew together all paisley pieces
- sew paisley lining to wool crepe
Making the shirt.
The Make Escape II
Went to The Make Escape again. This time we turned up super early (too keen for crafts maybe?) and made sunglasses. This involved a pair of sunglasses, some broken jewellry/brooches, some spare fabric, and loads of uhu.
In retrospect I’ve kinda gone for a whole Pink Ladies theme. Also my uhu skills leave a lot to be desired and most pieces have since fallen off, been reglued, and fallen off again. Oh dear…
