Flashback Friday – Renaissance Costume

| 0 comments

I love sewing. I also love theatre (my minor) and Halloween. So it’s only natural that I love making Halloween costumes, right?

I sewed this Renaissance dress for my sister a few years ago. I think I may wear it myself this year. I used McCall’s pattern 4997 if you’re interested. However, it calls for quite a bit of material, which can get really expensive. I used some fabric I already had on hand, and took out some of the fullness in the skirt and sleeves to make it fit. I added an extra layer of trim and lots of silver to make it flashy and fun for my sister to wear on Halloween. I’d love to make another dress out of this pattern, without any changes, but I’m not sure which colors to go with. I’ve seen it in blue and white, which was really pretty.
