Miss V is dressing up as Hermoine Granger for Halloween and wanted me to dress up like Professor McGonagall. Cool I thought....then I went searching for a green velvet robe and came up with NOTHING!
So we went to Joanns and picked out a Pattern.
So I kept watching the sales everywhere else.
Finally Hobby Lobby opened a few miles from my house and I printed out a 40% coupon. Then went to the grand opening weekend. Everyone was so helpful and I got my 8 yards of hunter green velvet.
It took me a few days to gain the courage to cut the fabric. Even at 40% off it was still a lot of money.
I sewed it over a couple of days and here I am...
I even have the Harry Potter theme song on my phone and will play it while walking around on Halloween.
