Rather last minute, I decided to whip up a second costume for my Saturday night out. As everything was a bit of a rush, alcohol consumption was included in the creation of this costume, hence the not-so-helpful pictures … but ce la vie! Here’s how to make the clown costume above:
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
– one over-sized charity shop t-shirt blouse
– one collared blouse
– needle and thread
– hot glue
– mini pom poms
-fishnets or tights
STEP 1, 2 & 3
Place the collared blouse inside the t-shirt blouse and sew the seams of the two together (as seen in 3.) – when the seams are successfully attached, cut the rest of the collared shirt off about four inches below the stitched collar.
Cut the sleeve of the leftover fabric from the collared shirt into two even pieces
With the first section of fabric, accordion it as you would if you were making a paper fan and sew the center to make the shape of a bow. Repeat with the second piece.
Using a pair of scissors, cut the accordioned fabric into strips, keeping the stitched center intact. Then sew the pom pom to the t-shirt blouse.
With your glue gun, glue the mini pom pom balls onto your fishnets or tights.
Rub your friends lipstick on your cheeks and lips and curl your hair as curly as you can and giggle off to your next adventure!
Such a cute idea! I love how your costume turned out. Your blog is adorable, I just came across it and love your style.
