This costume is now SOLD
The new version of my Babydoll costume. This all started when I made my skirt (version 2: the one before was made from an old t-shirt) much too short. So short that it couldn't be worn in public-or private.
I knew that I wouldn't be able to match the sweater that i'd used. Since in any case the sweater was not accurate to the costume, I decided to make the whole thing from scratch, and this time to do everything properly.
I used navy cotton drill and white bias tape for the top and skirt, and some old cream cotton to make the collar. THe top was modified from a pattern in the October 2010 Burda style magazine. THe skirt was made with the help of these Evange's box pleat tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJUuxOTkbRE and Secret Life of a Bionerd's Sucker Punch tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbxUNIkc5Gw
The wig in these pictures is the old one. I actually wore a nicer new wig for Comic Con 2011, but I cannot find any photos. I'm also working on creating a simple holster, making the charms on Babydoll's gun, and customising a toy sword and scabbard.
