I get a biiiiiit carried away. This year I told myself...ONE costume. One. Not two. Not three... ONE.
Surprise! I have three now. Or I have the supplies for three, I have not finished making them yet.
For October's Thrifty Thursday I decided to do an original piece- a witch. It is 1700s inspired with a flair of medieval and a spot of modern appeal. Everything I got was from Goodwill for under $20.
I started on the two underskirts first- making one from the black sheet and one from the bed skirt. The pleather and woven leather were used for a corset.
I drafted the pattern on some leftover sheets.
And pieced it all together...
And then I made a hat! Because no witch is complete without her hat!
My handy dandy photographer was away when I decided to take pictures, so I had to get really fancy with the method of self-timing on my phone. But here are some of the pictures of the full outfit!
