Halloween 2012 - A Starry Night Indeed...

This year for Halloween I decided to be a real work of art and dressed as Van Gogh's "Starry Night."  I used Butterick 4918 for the boned strapless bodice and then made a simple circle skirt and applicqued the cityscape and tree peices. 

The dress was peiced from a shower curtain (because I am super classy) and the lining was cheap costume fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric. 

The bodice and back drape was made with tulle in shades of black, blue and pale yellow.  The yellow was utilized as the base color across the bodice and to create starburst swirls to mimic the swirls in the original painting.
