No info for you, but can't wait to see it. I would love a costume like one of the sisters. So wish I could sew. It is hard to find costumes to fit me.

That would be a fantastic costume - I love all the layers. Lots of pictures on Pinterest of hers as well and many Winifred costumes. Can't wait to see your finished product! :D

These were the exact pictures I was going to show you. They don't show all of the symbols but quite a few of them. I made the Sanderson sisters costumes last year for my sisters and I (first time ever sewing clothes lol what a project!!) and these were the pictures I used to make the symbols on Winnies coat. I spent hours watching the DVD and pausing and rewinding and pausing etc trying to get a better view of the symbols but no luck. Here are the costumes I made, I did not make the Billy the zombie costume and my sister styled all the wigs and did our make up.

I love that costume that you made!
Thank you!! I had a blast making them and was so excite that they turned out as well as they did since I had never seen clothes before however probably won't be doing that again any time soon lol. Making 3 costumes (3 costumes that all had lots of layers) and plan and prep and decorate for my party plus a full time job and a part time job.....time was running short, very stressful but totally worth it!!
