Ever heard of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?
Um, I hadn’t. Until two weeks ago when I spotted a request for a custom costume on Etsy alchemy.
The Etsy request went something like:
Although I had no idea about the movie, or the character, the denim pinafore looked simple enough. So, I bid away.
And was awarded the bid.
So, I went to work re-creating Clementine’s dear cowgirl costume. You know, the one she wore while hiding in Joel’s memory as a kid.
I loved creating a pattern for this totally different pinafore, and piecing it right onto my dress form. I actually finished the last touches at a friend’s house while catching up on Project Runway. Perfect inspiration.
Clementine is now packed up into a tidy flat-rate envelope destined for Halloween success. The buyer is super happy with the dress, and I am glad (because I think she might be in for a Halloween night of people asking, “So, what are you?”)
