Black and white Skirt and Amy dress

frontsideI have been wanting to make some skirts like this for  a while for every day use and for dress up and for costumes this was an experiment.  Since I am backing off a little on costumes for the school this year.  I thought I might make a few costumes for my family.   This one is for my family.  It feels funny calling this a costume because for me this would be a normal skirt I would wear to church or any wear else.  That is not to say I would not wear it as a costume too I would.

The corset I did not make it is one I bought at Hot Topic.  Yes I shop at Hot Topic it is one of my families favorite stores.  That sometimes surprises people.

IMG_2801The mannequin has a smaller waist than i do so it does not quiet fit right but I think next time I will make the waist 4 inches narrower.  The fabric is gathered in the back of the skirt to form a pseudo bustle.  I still have tons of upholstery fabric and trim so this is one way I can use it up and do something with it.  I used some of my fringe trim to line the hem of the skirt.

I think the left over fabric from the Amy dress would be great like this.

In case you do not know what the Amy dress is go here and here. I never actually showed it finished on my blog so for those who were curious as to how it came out here you go .

My middle daughter and myself did the collar work together the sleeve lace is 100 year old curtain fabric I still have lots of both fabrics in this dress.  I even used some of the fabric  a few years ago for another costume for my middle daughter when she went to a dance as the Mad hatters daughter that costume also got worn in the Wizard of Oz play by my youngest daughter when she played a munch-kin.  Costumes in our house almost have a life of their own as does fabric.  If you look at the bottom photo for Amy's costume she has quiet the bustle I had to make this black and white skirt not as large and not as complicated but fun all the same

all ready
You know that old saying that women like to use does this dress make my bum look big in this case yes would be the answer but it would be more like does it look big enough yet.  Interesting what use to be normal fashion is now costume fashion.

The picture to the right is my middle daughter wearing the other costume that used some of the same fabric as Amy's costume this is the daughter that helped me with the neckline lace of Amy's dress.  The shirt she is wearing is also from Little Women but in the play the guys wore this shirt.  To us it is just a good pirate like shirt.

The pictures below are my youngest daughter during tech rehearsals For the Wizard of Oz from this school years play this last October.
