Costume Information

Cost : £73
Time Taken : Two months, on and off

Chosen because I love the series and the character a lot. Like, a lot a lot.

Designed by:, used with permission.

It's hard to choose the hardest part, as all of it was pretty difficult: probably the bells to be honest. The easiest part...the dress and coat. From this I learnt not to layer too much, to be careful when measuring handles, and that staples fix all sins.
