SEWING

I made a Rhinebeck Dress! Pattern: Butterick "Patterns by Gertie" B65453

Halloween costume plans: This year I'll be going as Feyre from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, by Sarah J. Maas. (Amazon Link)
McCall's M6893

The smallest pattern size was still too large for me, so I used the pivot technique to decrease the bustline to fit my own ... and it's GENIUS!  (YouTube video by Professor Pincushion)

Halloween Costume inspiration: 

BookMarkdTattoos — The Etsy shop, where I found my Feyre tattoo. 
Found my fairy / elf ears on Amazon. 
Cauldron from Target ;)
