I promised one last tutorial on how I created one of my accessory items before I show the final look so here it is -- Legwarmers from an old sweater:
I bought an XL sweater at the Salvation Army Store, brought it home and laid it out flat on the floor.
With shears I cut off the sleeves along the main seam.
I put them on with the widest part around my ankle so they would fit over my boots and the finished edge of the cuff was at my calf so they wouldn’t slip down. The main part of the sweater will be lined and then used to create a soft throw pillow (I’ll share that project later).
Any idea what I am going as?
Well I’m sure you have all figured it out by now but my outfit was inspired by Madonna’s Lucky Star video!
And here’s me:
The only items that were purchased brand new were the jewelry pieces and the wig. Every single piece (except likely the wig) will be worn again (frequently) because separately they are all just great clothing items that fit well and are functional. But every once in a while I think it will be a little fun and toss on my 80’s revival outfit. Minus the big hair of course!
Happy Halloween everyone!
