We are attending a Halloween party on Saturday, and I decided to go uber-cheap with my costume. We stopped at a thrift store this evening and purchased some make-shift costumes, but I’m going to have to tweak mine a bit in order to have it look semi-respectable. Since I’ve taken the task upon myself, I decided I’d post before and after pictures. Yeah, I’ll probably F it up somehow.
Here is a picture of the dress. Or shall we say potato sack? Or shall we say can you believe someone wore this thing?
Here is a picture of the contraption, which, in theory, will help me make that potato sack into something sleek and sexy (with divine intervention, of course). This machine is older than Eric and I combined. Eric wants to know where the gasoline goes, and where the pull cord is. He’s still looking.
The major factor in the inevitable screwing up of my costume is this: I don’t sew. Well, I do a little bit. But I can’t even get the dang bobbin threaded, so I don’t know how it’s going to play out. I may just have to take this thing over to my mom’s, who’s sewing machine is twice as old as mine.
I’ll post the after pictures on Saturday, hopefully! :)
