A Peacock Debut

Here comes Halloween, Here comes Halloween, Halloween,Halloween...
Finally completed the costume last night and here is Camilla debuting right before running off to classes. I made the over skirt which was really easy I just took 2yards of  irridescent organza, sheared it and attached it to a ribbon. The top is made from a pair of silk hombre shorts Camilla found at the Goodwill. We bought this beautiful feather trim at Mood Fabrics and hand sewed it to the front waistband. The peacock tail we attached to the back of the top inside the waistband, fanned it out, and hand sewed in place. The headband Camilla stumbled upon while out with friends at this boutique in Manhattan Beach called LULU'S. There was no designer name or label inside which is a shame  since it is so beautiful.

 
Have a Safe Halloween everyone!
