Ho-boy, this costume was an interesting one. Made the day before Halloween,actually....
Anyway found the red sweater at the thrift store along with the skirt. The sweater isn't perfect,but it works. I cut the neck pat off to make it a little wider and frayed. The skirt was all white and about a foot longer in the back. I didn't have time to hem the top layer of the skirt and since I can't sew the bottomw layer is pretty poorly hemmed. Gauze is a bitch and a half to work with. I dyed the skirt twice,which wasn't fun. First time it was too dark,so I bleached it out and it was the perfect color for the top layer. Then, I dunked just the bottom skirt in the pot,let it sit for a minute,and voila!
My boots are brown and still not entirely accurate and obviously my hair isn't as long as hers, but still, I think this came out pretty good.
