Hi everyone, I'm Adrienne, a long time lurker and I finally have something to post about! Here goes...So I have made the fool hardy decision of making a Hannibal/Dressing Gown (from the stage) costume for Halloween. I am a novice at sewing and was wondering if any one had any good tips for me. Such as; good patterns to use, where to buy fabrics and trims, and any other execution tips you would care to tell me. All the costumes I have seen here are so beautiful, and the websites so helpful as well. Thanks for all the help, and good luck to all the costumes you embark on too!
