Opus Gluei #25 Challenge

Here is my entry for this week's challenge over with Jana and Rosemary at the Order of the Opus-Gluei. This week's theme was "National Sewing Month", so sew some seams, I did. (alliteration intended here!)

This is my daughter's Halloween Costume for this year. The pattern is from Simplicity - #3685. Of course we had to substitute fabric, as an exact match wasn't available in our local fabric stores. Once the jacket grommets are in to lace up the red ribbon and she adds a can-can slip under the full circular skirt of the dress, it will hang just right and be so cute!

Beware though - this pattern is NOT for a beginning seamstress. They are very fitted and experienced level of knowledge in sewing would be necessary to complete these garments. Even though I am a very experienced seamstress, the garments took over sixteen hours to complete and that was with my daughter's help on cutting the fabric and pressing seams open.

    OMG,this is so cool! What a great mom you are to give of your time and make something like this for your daughter! I bet you made gorgeous costumes for her during her childhood!
