Whew! I can check "make Vampire Princess costume" off my list of things to do. Just in a nick of time too! This Halloween snuck up on me with Rhinebeck being last weekend. Luckily I’d been slowly working on this costume for "Fake Niece" Zoe for some time, but had to push through the last two evenings to get it done.
Even hyper critical me thinks it came out terrific. It’s kind of hard to see from the photos, but the peplum is purple organza with fuzzy black glitter spiders on it. The other fabric is a black net with purple glitter spiderwebs printed on it. There are also FOUR layers of tulle in that skirt. Talk about devotion.
I brought it to work today to pack up in our shipping department and made everyone exclaim about it’s cuteness before packing it up. I’ll try and get pix of the girl in the costume (hopefully it fits…), so you can see it on a person rather than hanging on my door.
Specs: Pattern – McCalls 4947, combination of views A and B with overlaid netting on bodice and sleeves
Now I can get back to sewing up that Phildar Rhinebck sweater.
