Introduction: Cher Horowitz Clueless Costume
As if! My friend and I have been wanting to do Cher and Dionne for years, and thought this would be a good year with the “Fancy” resurgence of the look. The outfit I made is a fitted suit jacket and pleated skirt and furry backpack. The cardigan sweater was bought and shortened. I added the large pearly buttons. The skirt pleats are 2 inch right hand folds, sewn for 1.5 inches fromt he waist band, with a flat placket in the front where the pleats change directions. The jacket was patterned from an existing Urban Outfitters blazer I had, and the skirt was draped. Came together very easily. My favorite projects are replicas. I’m detail obsessed and I promise this is accurate :)
-Yellow and blue/black plaid (I could only find a closely matched pattern in a lycra, which I had to fuse to thick interfacing in order to sew structured garments)
-White vinyl for backpack
-White Mongolian fur for the backpack
-Black double fold bias tape for cuffs and jacket bottom
-Kilt pins-Gold metal buttons
-Hook and eye closures for skirt
-Whopper popper for backpack
-Giant 90s cell phone and white pager for accessories
