This week's post is a few days late, because I wanted the wearer to receive it before I posted it! That and holidays always throw off my schedule- so happy back to school for all you school-bound jokers- I will remain here in my studio (where I think should have a name) sewing up a storm!
I was contacted by a woman who lives where I used to (briefly) reside, in Virginia. Her daughter is a drum major entering her senior year of high school, and this was what they requested. The band is doing a bunch of Danny Elfman scores from Tim Burton movies, so I think this ensemble is very fitting.
I love all the fabrics that were used for this. The main fabric is a sweater knit with metallic strands throughout- if I ever get around to it, I am def making myself some cool sweater knit stuff!
Oh, and the collar, you like that? Halloween is a great season for fabric shopping. I found this spiderweb fabric, it's actually a lace, so I just used some ordinary cotton to make it opaque. The spiderwebs are silver on one side, and gold on the other.
