So in honor of my favorite day of the year next to Thanksgiving (coughHALLOWEENcough), I came up with two last minute costume-y posts for you. The idea behind these two posts was to use what I had in my house to make a last minute Halloween costume.
This first one didn't work so well.
The Lisette pattern I used for this dress was not really cut out to be a babydoll style dress. And the skirt I reconstructed into the skirt portion of this dress was pretty much the same width as the top which meant it didn't gather at all. I hate the shape of this dress. Luckily, I can still take it apart and make something great out of it. Sometime in the future. When I don't hate looking at it.
Until then, here is my "last minute mermaid" costume. Stay tuned for next week's theme.
