Captain America T Shirt and Tutu September 29, 2017 – Posted in: costumes, halloween, no-sew, painting
Oh, those middle school girls… Last year a bunch of my daughters’ friends were going to trick or treat as girly superheroes with tutus. She chose Captain America. Well, then some sort of drama ensued and the entire plan fell apart. In the end, she decided to keep her original costume plan, so I had to throw it together at the last minute.
I measured her waist and cut some one inch non-roll elastic an inch smaller. Then, I overlapped the ends an inch and sewed them together in a circle. I cut a few yards of tulle into strips and packed them up a plastic grocery bag to take along to soccer. By halftime, I was done looping the tulle over the elastic!
I thought it turned out pretty sharp-looking!
I am all about low-effort Halloween costumes. If you want to see more, here are some others I have blogged about…
