Hermione Granger and Severus Snape

I'm a HUGE Snape/Hermione fan. I've read nearly all the fan fics. I've written one. So of course, when I found out that my boyfriend and I were going to the Symphony to hear them play Harry Potter for Halloween...I needed to make us costumes.

Hermione's bust was a pain...

Whoever thought that making a triangle-shaped bust pattern was a good idea should be kicked. Emma Watson didn't have much fullness in the chest at that point, so that makes it a little easier. 25-year-old me...not so much. I had to redraft the bust pattern twice because it kept misbehaving and coming out a little too much like Madonna.


The rest of the bodice was quite easy to make and it came along quickly. The skirt took tons and tons of chiffon. I think I bought 7 yards of chiffon and I used it ALL. Every scrap.


Yes...the socks are for padding. My dress form is slightly flatter than I am.

Turn to Page 394...

Thanks for reading!


  1. AAAH!!! I knew that you had wanted to make these outfits, but I didn't realize that you had done it!!!! You two look A-MA-ZING <333 I absolutely love it~ Hope you had fun at the orchestra!

    1. Thank you so much! The dress was actually surprisingly comfortable to wear...not many of my costumes end up being as comfortable.
