The Addams Family

We were the Addams Family – Gomez, Morticia, and Wednesday. I made all three costumes. It was quite a challenge for me, but I think I pulled it off well. I used a formal dress pattern for Morticia. It is actually two pieces – the dress and a bolero jacket. I added the “fringe” using a sheer fabric that I cut into “legs.” Wednesday’s is a Simplicity pattern and I added spider trim along the bottom and bodice. The goody bag is just a rectangle sewn together with straps. (I always make goody bags to match the costume.) Gomez’s suit is from a Vogue pattern. I found really great fabric in the clearance section – $5 a yard. It was perfect – black with silver pinstriping.
