Mr. FL and I went to a costume party last night. He was a nerd and he may kill me if he finds out I posted this pic (shshshshsh, our little secret, OK?). I was the Gray Lady, a costume from the Martha Stewart website that I saw last year and just couldn't wait to do. If you put it in your idea file, get more tulle than the instructions call for because I got 10 yds instead of the 8 1/2 it said, and the dress was just barely adequate to go around. I'd also recommend wearing a gray slip or dress underneath instead of the white that the instructions have because since the tulle is so sheer, you end up seeing a lot of the underneath layer. I didn't find a gray dress, slip, or nightgown at my local thrifts, so I just went with the white, but I think the gray would have been much better. All in all though, it was a fun costume, easy to make (no sew-Woo! Hoo!), and got lots of compliments at the party. Hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween with your loved ones. We have one of the greatest neighborhoods for trick or treating, so it is really like a big street party with friends and neighbors and one of the "not to be missed" events of the year.
Until next time,
