For my Halloween costume to every day wearables, I used my dyed green mesh to make a made for mermaids mama stella. It also happened to match the walls at my mom’s house where I was taking photographs!
I made a scoop back with long sleeves.
I also bound the neckline and sleeves with fold over elastic and gave myself a thumb hole, because come on…its a thumb home!
It really had a great grungy punk look when paired with skinny distressed grey jeans and a black camisole tank.
I also made a self drafted a yoga skirt because I was fed up searching for what I really wanted. It’s a highwaisted skirt that is 16 inches from waist to hemline (I was lazy and didn’t hem) and has a 4 inch wide yoga style waist band. I basically measured my waist and hips and graded out.
I paired them with a store bought corset that I covered in a rayon crepe. The final result was a little Victorian prostitute meets Poison Ivy….I kinda dig it! I added some fake leaves, vampy makeup, and knee high boots, and boom! I may add some green pleather spats later, but the jury is still out.
