Happy Halloween! I’ve made a maid outfit for myself this year. They consist of the main black and white dress, a frilly white apron, and a headband. I aimed for a cute yet elegant style adding details which are not too much.
The dress has a round collar and cuffs with black piping detail, pin tucks at the bust section with fabric covered buttons, white ladder lace inserted along the front skirt, black scalloped lace trimmings along the blouse and dress joint and the layered frills of the back skirt, and mini pleats all along the hem. The dress opens up at the back when you unhook the gold hook at the back waist which loosens the fitted silhouette allowing you to dress/undress easily. No buttons or zippers along the back or side of the garment. Made with black cotton sateen and crisp white cotton fabric.
The apron is kept simple with a minimal size and lovely dotted/scalloped lace trimmings along the edge. The ends of the waist tie ribbon are pointed for extra charm. Made with light weight cotton fabric all in white. I’ve made the headband using the leftover ladder lace from the dress and the dotted lace from the apron.
