Hello! Today was a brilliant day here in Spain; I got to go to the Royal Tapestry Workshop and see the weavers in action, which was awesome (but alas no pictures allowed.) BUT I do have a rather picture intensive post today; in complete contrast to yesterday's puppy costume, today I have Emmie's Witch costume to share,
Emmie's costume all got started with the hat. She found the witch's hat at a Halloween store, and IMMEDIATELY wanted to be a witch. I have been sharing sneak peeks on my FB page as I made this costume, so some of you may have had an idea what it was going to look like.
The back was cut longer than the pattern indicated, and then rounded into a sort of bustle/tails.
The underdress was made pretty much as the pattern indicated, (combining a few of the patterns looks) with just added embellishment
The lower skirt ruffle has a velvet trim over the seam, which helps stiffen the hem, and make the skirt stand out more. We were able to find a cauldron to be her treat bucket, we just replaced the plastic handle with a black rope one for strength.
Anyway, I would love to hear what you think about any of it (do you hate the photo textures? I worry that it makes the details less clear, so I didn't use them on everything.) I am also excited to share Isaac's costume tomorrow, as I happen to think it is soooooo him, and hilarious (I laugh every time I look at the pictures)
