Last year I made Sephora a candy corn dress for the Halloween season. This year I made this:
I started with this shirt from Walmart – it had long sleeves and was a junior size (Sephora’s medication has caused her to gain some weight recently so her wardrobe is requiring some modifications).
To make this into a dress I added about 8 inches of a black tshirt to the bottom to make it longer and to add color and depth.
Then I cut the sleeves down (and hemmed them) to about 3/4 length sleeves for her. That is really all I did and now she has a dress that she loves! At first she asked me to make her a wedding dress – but in the end she was just as happy with this Halloween dress!
