She did a really great and creative fabrication of one of my patterns. I know you are going to want to see this so .... take it away Marietta!
"Mom, I am going to wear what I wire last year since we are at a new school and a new neighborhood. BUT FOR NEXT YEAR, I have lots of ideas!"
Why is this the sweetest thing, you might ask? It meant I got to make a costume for me! My son went out as a Cyborg and I (almost) went out as Snow White.
My goal was to create a costume that was relatively age and body type appropriate, something that I could possibly wear again AND something which had the potential of stash-busting and be a pattern already in existence. So I went with Simplicity 1773 – Andrea’s version of Snow White and the Huntsman.
There are many challenges to stash busting - such as not having the exact amount of fabric required for a garment, not having matching threads, and not having all of the important notions.
Next time I will go through what I changed, what I forgot and how I put it all together.
Andrea again ... come back Wednesday to see this costume take shape.
