Flapper Costume from an Old Curtain

I made this flapper costume from an old satin curtain. To make it, I traced a dress I had onto the curtain on the bias. I flat felled the side seams and used ribbon as straps. The gold trim from the curtain became a fancy neckline on the dress. I used the same ribbon, plus some felt feathers and elastic, to make a matching headband. Add a long, beaded necklace and you have one glamorous Halloween costume! For more projects, come visit my blog, Hoopes Park Studios

Cute costume. Halloween costumes and refashions are perfect for each other.
