Check out this last-minute Halloween wedding dress that I sew in an afternoon out of some hand over curtains and leftover satin. A fun Bride Halloween costume that can get totally destroyed without any guilt!
I ve been so busy laterly with projects! But it has been so fun to sew things not just for myself. This past week I made: 3 bridesmaids dresses, 2 Halloween costumes for friends, a jacket for a groom, and my own Halloween costume (This one!).
The only bad part is that I was trying to go so fast that I forgot to take pictures of the process to share with you – I know! Bad blogger! But I am making an effort to really document the next project so that I can turn it into a tutorial for you!
Last year we didn't really have time to plan our costumes because we were so busy preparing for our wedding, so this year we decided early to be a Mail-order Bride and a Geek. It's kind of fun to make another wedding dress, but this time in such a relaxed way! Because it can get messy and I don't feel the pressure I did when making my own REAL wedding dress.
So, of course, after I gathered some materials, I had to sew another wedding dress for the occasion =]
I searched for short wedding dress inspiration, tons of it actually, but since my own costume was at the end of the to-do list. I end up with only 6 hours to make the dress, so I had to change my design and make it more time-friendly.
I kept the top just like I wanted and changed only the bottom of the dress, my plan was to have a bottom full of rosettes – very over the top :) but I end up making just an underskirt with leftover purple from my real wedding dress and a plain bottom.
I used some old curtains that Ken's aunt Joy gave me (She has the cutest name lol) to make the dress, the purple leftovers, and I spend $3 on the white satin I used for the inside and the outside details.
One of my favorite parts were the back, I also made the purple detachable so I can wear it and show as much purple as I want, or none. I also think it looks cute without the underskirt, it's more like a normal dress.
I also made a hairpiece to go with it and wore mail shipping tags, I will share some funny pictures of the swapping costumes we did last night once I have them, and the permission to post them lol
I wish the curtains would have been diamond white instead of pearl white, but ho well! – I think it came out pretty nice :) What do you think?
