Months later, I happened on this old thing in my refash pile.
Manic Pixie Dream Girl costume that I could make just for kicks. I included a link for anyone not familiar with this term.
TL;DR version: I cut it too short, changed the black sash for a teal polka dot one, and took in the sides a bit. Then I added a few "quirky" accessories.
on my blog; Craft, Thrift, or Die...if you feel like it.
