Total cost: $0 Glitter fabric was gifted from a friend, floral print was leftovers from my Mom’s bedroom curtains. Lace was from a close out sale for decorations from my wedding. The ribbon was from the wrapping from a Christmas present from my Mother in Law. And of course I had the patterns already in my stash.
There are actually two skirts, and the over-skirt has a train, and is open in the front. The train is bustled and I wore this to trick-or-treat at the Redford Library with C2, his friend, and my fabulous friend Kendra who works there.
I had hoped to wear it trick-or-treating on Halloween, but it rained. 🙁
