A Halloween Spin on a Vintage Classic

The days are getting shorter, the weather cooler, and the leavers are changing color. It’s my favorite time of year – autumn.  Katie and I have been waiting for these colder days for some time, since we can now fully enjoy our felt circle skirts that we’ve been making…and now that it is October, I am proud to unveil my delightful Halloween play on the classic poodle skirt…

I love that I have been able to blend my love of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas so easily into my vintage wardrobe, at least for the Halloween and Christmas seasons that is.

I did another Halloween themed felt circle skirt as well…to be revealed at a later date.

Letterman Sweater: Red Light, Portland
Grey Sweater: Thrifted
Zero Skirt: Homemade with homemade pattern, and fabric from Fabric Depot
Crinoline: Hollywood Vintage, Portland
Saddle Shoes: Payless about ten years ago…
Black Necklace: The Clothes Horse, Eugene

  2. Oh my goodness I love everything about this! Can I ask two questions; I’m planning on making a circle skirt for my Xmas trip to disneyworld, what type of fabric did you use, and what did you do for the waistband? I am concerned about using felt, because it may stretch. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
