Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
Yes, for my work xmas party the theme is superheroes and movie stars, and I am going as Judy Garland in the guise of Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz. I just finished my costume:
Ah I love it! Costume making is the best. :)
So how did it all come together?
- Light blue socks
- Butterick 6671 smock pattern from the op shop + Free Burdastyle pattern Danielle #9306 + blue gingham + white muslin = the outfit (check out the rocking job I did with the pleated sleeves - I'm so proud!)
- Blue ribbons
- Two braids in my hair
- $3 sensible heels from the op shop + tub of red glitter + fabric glue + patience = ruby slippers
- Lavals long coyote black fur + an adjusted version of nunodoll's life-size dachshund pattern = Toto (oh yes he is such a good dog!)
I finished Toto yesterday. I decided not to get a basket until I was sure what size he would turn out. I have some extra gingham left over, so next weekend I'm going to take him for a walk to the op shops around Sutherland to find a picnic basket that's the right size for him, and then I'll line it with the gingham. Perfect!
So, do y'all think I'll win the best dressed contest?
