I got this really fun masquerade mask for my birthday back in June and when Josh & I got invited to an adult only Halloween party I knew exactly what I wanted to be.
On Thursday I picked up this old 80's prom dress from the thrift store to change into my costume.
That afternoon I finally found time to get cutting and sewing. And I didn't have much time. I had a meeting that night, and kids to pick up and drop off, but sewed every minute I wasn't sleeping.
I made the black ruffles by overlapping black grosgrain ribbon and sewing it down. It worked perfectly.
This is a photo of it only 3/4 of the way done.
I love how it ended up, because I just really wanted a fun and pretty statement piece to match the mask.
My vampire and I had such a great time that night. And the costume turned out great!
