I love the movie "Hocus Pocus". After searching online for a premade Winifres Sanderson costume with no luch, I decided to make it myself.
Step 1: Her Cloak
I went to the fabric store and got this stretchy crushed velvet fabric. I think I only bought 2 yards. It was $2 a yard.
I simply laid out the fabrick and placed another jacket on top to get my measurements. Then I cut out the shape I wanted pined it and sewed. I then added the clasp.
Step 2: Painting
I then tacked it to a piec of foam board and with white paint I laid in my design. Once that dried I painted over it with gold leaf paint. I then glued on rinestones for extra sparkle.
Step 3: The Dress
I took an old green dress I had and cut straight up the front. I bought a 1/2 yard of purple fabric and a yard of orange fabric and added them to the front. I also took the gole string and strung it throught the green to give it a fitted look.
Step 4: The Shoes
I bought a $10 pair of green boots on line. I then took a white paint pen and drew in the design I wanted. Then I went over the white with a gold leaf paint pen. Last I added a couple of gold rinestones to finish it off.
