I also wanted something more creative than a white sheet wrapped around my body. So I decided to hit the costume and party stores. I found this awful looking thing on sale for $14.99 at Party City.
As it turns out, taking pictures of your own self is really hard!
Anyhoo, it was a step up from a plain white sheet, but not by much. It was a sleeveless, long white dress 3 sizes too big, with a diagonal sash looking thing-y.
So after a quick trip to my local Joann's and 4-5 hours in front of my trusty serger, I transformed it into this:
Here is what I did:
Made it a bit smaller so that the shape was a bit more flattering
Adjusted the shoulder seam (as you could see way too much when I moved my arms)
Added tons of trim
Total cost: $25.00 (I already had the sandals)
I got so many compliments at the party that I have decided to make all of my costumes from now on. I like being unique ;)
Happy Friday Friends!
