My Fair Lady
I made this costume using an old Simplicity pattern and changing the design and pattern to look more like the dress Audrey Hepburn wore in the musical My Fair Lady. I used satin and lace for the dress and added black and white satin for the bows and inserts. I made the wide brimmed hat using satin, lace and netting and added silk flowers, boas and a big black and white satin bow to match the two bows on the dress. I purchased a white parasol, lace gloves, black and white vintage earrings and white vintage boots. I made and wore this costume for my 4-H fashion review and won 2nd runner up at the Indiana State Fair.
