As the days went by and it began to be October, I decided that I would be an Angel for Halloween. (Later I used this costume for a New Year's Eve Costume Party).
I began with the skirt and gently gathered up old pieces of nylon net that I had gotten when my friend Phyliss died. I added flowers, ribbon, anything that caught my fancy and made me feel good.
Then I decided that I HAD to have wings - so I bought a pair of children's wings and went to town on them. I added net, feathers, flowers and I adjusted the straps to fit an adult. Most of this added stuff I stitched, but some (it looks like) I glued.
The small sweater has maribou feathers sewn along the neck and down the front. The sleeves have been decorated with a ruffle of lace on the cuffs, as well as small cherubs on the upper part of the sleeve.
The size is pretty flexible as the skirt has an elastic waist. I'd say between a size 8-14.
so, should you want to be Angelic on Halloween or any other time, or should you want any more photos or info on this piece, please email me.
