First of all it's Trillian from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy which is an awesome book and mediocre movie but I love Zoeey Deschanel. I have some issues with this costume which I would fix if it were going to get massive play which it's not. (But I do keep all my costumes in case of a costuming emergency.) I know the shirt is buttoned too high but that's to hide the tattoo. Maybe I'll undo it and see how it looks tomorrow. I know I'm not as thin as Zooey D and the costume has been taken in many times because the pattern I bought 100 years ago is too big. This is before I realized I had to make my clothes a size down from my actual size because every time I made my size in the past I was tenting it. The crotch is way too long. Maybe the pattern works best with tall women? It's an 80s jumpsuit pattern btw.
And of course now that I look they have my size on eBay. :/
So if anyone knows how to shorten a crotch, let me know. Never tried that in my life. I also need to lengthen the cuffs a little but I have a massive headache and am still in a lot of pain. I might just say forget it tonight. Anyway, I think it turned out okay. It could be better if I wanted to devote more time and effort to it and it also could be better if I was a better seamstress.
Funny, today I read on Zooey D's Facebook that she also puts a lot of time and effort into costumes no one can identify. I guess we're more alike than I thought!
Happy Halloween everyone!
