My handmade Halloween Costume

For this pattern, I used Simplicity Renaissance pattern 3809.

Simplicity Sewing Pattern 3809 Misses Costumes, U (16-18-20)

   I am horrible at garments, but I did make it through!  Some of the things I learned when making this pattern:   Grommets/eyelets, Boning, adding Lace accents, and bustling an overskirt.   
I'm most excited about the boning and grommets though.  I really think this will come in handy in the future.  

My mom things we look like the characters from Les Miserables that sing "Master of The House" - Monsieur and Madame Thenardier. 

 I didn't make my husband's costume  - we just used a dracula store-bought costume for him.  we ditched the cape that came with teh costume and instead used a midieval looking jacket that we found at our local flea market for $5.


  1. Love your costume! You and your husband make a handsome couple! It looks like you had fun.

  2. Wow! Your costumes were terrific! Pretty soon you'll be doing re-enactments and Little Theater groups.
    I'm totally jealous of your Orca Bay! Good going!
    And the WV Pepperoni rolls sound so yummy I must try them, thanks for great instructions!

  3. Great costumes!You two look so cute!
