Here’s my entry in the November Party contest – my Halloween outfit, Vintage Vogue 2609. It went to quite the party – the New York City Dances of Vice Halloween party.
It was an Edward-Gorey-themed party (at times, quite loosely) and I thought a deep-colored version of this pattern would fit right in. So I made one. Out of $2-per-yard satin. (And some weird kind of latex fabric that I accidentally bought for the contrast.)
Though it was a bit long, it was great for the party and I thought it looked lovely. The art-deco styling makes me want to make a really classy version of this – from some lovely fabric – and wear it to the fanciest ball I can find. (The capelet, high neck line and open back make even this under-$20 version feel fancy and classy!)

(That tie at the bottom is supposed to be
tacked down – pshaw, it’s fine!)
