Below is the dress to match the hat…… (If you have not seen the hat, scroll down the page to previous post.)
I began with a plain jean dress, which was seeing it’s final days, because my little scarecrow is growing like a weed. So I thought that altering something we already had would be a great way to repurpose!!
The pom-pom trim was machine stitched around the hemline, and the raffia was cut to the perfect size and also attached with the sewing machine. Raffia was tied around the buttons to help fill in some of the empty space, and also gives the idea of being stuffed with straw. A little butterfly is hot glued on the button, can you see it?
Felt leaves were hot glued around the neckline. The patches were cut and the frayed edges give it the perfect scarecrow appearance. A felt pumpkin was added to the patches to give more color and add some detail to the overall look.
The back of the dress was completed with the same leaf neckline and patches. The raffia around the sleeves was machine stitched, I would hate for my little scarecrow to lose her stuffing. 🙂
Hope this costume will inspire you to repurpose this Halloween Season.
