Happy Halloween everyone!
For my Halloween outfit this year, I’m going to be dressing up as Columbia from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
A fancy dress shop provided me with the basics for the outfit (sequin bow tie, hat, fishnets and a wig). I already had a sequin jacket, but oddly enough I didn’t have a pair of rainbow shorts in my wardrobe.
To make the shorts, I decided to recycle some rainbow fabric that I had left over after I altered a vintage dress. It had been sitting in my fabric stash for a while – I knew I was saving it for something special! I then had an ‘ah-ha’ moment and decided to use it to make the shorts from my Fifi pattern.
Here they are, the little hot patootie hot pants! Aren’t they great!
To make a sparkly top I recycled this old skirt by cutting it in half and adding some thin elastic to the top edge.
Here’s the finished outfit – my handmade interpretation of the fabulous Columbia outfit!
Happy Halloween to you all, have fun and if you have made your own home-made outfits, please share! I’d love to see them.
