The legendary Sally Bowles from cabaret
Love the costume and always wanted to do my own version

So this is kind of a work in progress. i've got enough to make a tangible costume, but i wanna keep improving it.
My current improvements mean i want to get new shorts and actually sew on the suspenders so that they look more sally bowlesish...
also i really need to stitch a bra in to the backless waistcoat.

Full backed Waistcoat - £14.99 H&M
Coorect tie back wasitcoat - £3.99
Suspenders - £3 - H&M
Shoes - £49 M&S (they're also my college shoes too XD)
Stockings - £2.99 - primark
Shorts - £2 - primark
Bowler hat - lifted from my school play when they were done with it ;)

It's a lot more than i usually spend on a costume...but i needed all the stuff anyway
Shoes i needed for school, Stockings i needed for cabaret, Waistcoat i wanted for school... and who DOESN'T need a bowler hat?!?
