Can-Can Costume

Filed under: sewing — Kristin @ 6:51 pm

After making a very simple pillow, I decided to jump right in and make my Halloween costume this year.   And I gave myself less than 2 weeks to do it.  It probably ended up taking me about 40 hours to finish this thing.  I got up early to work on it before work, and when I got home from work, I stayed up late to work on it too.  I was working on it right up until 5 minutes before I went out Friday night.  I had just enough time to snip all the long threads and put it on before meeting friends for a party.  I got to wear it to a party Saturday too, and Sunday to the Henri David Costume Ball, which was tons of fun.  I have a feeling I will be making another complicated costume for the ball next year.  This is the Simplicity 9899 pattern.  I got all of the fabric at JoAnn’s.

  1. Where did you get the pattern? Our Joann Fabrics does not carry it anymore.

  2. I probably got the pattern at JoAnn’s but I made this several years ago so I can’t guarantee they still carry it.
