This costume was about half closet stuff and half handmade.
The cardigan was originally pure white with ugly square pockets on the front. I tea-dyed the cardigan to give it the off-white color, ripped the pockets off and replaced them with faux 45-degree angle pockets. I made the red designs with fabric marker. The skirt was handmade (and needs to be remade -- I don't know what's going on with those pleats O_o). I already owned the shirt, I bought the stripey socks from Sock Dreams (Ravenclaw socks FTW!), and found the shoes on clearance at DSW. I had to dye the shoelaces orange because I couldn't find orange ones to save my life!
The cardigan and skirt need some work before I wear this again, but otherwise I think I look cute in this! I put a temporary red dye in my hair for this costume, and I like the look.
