It's a mod, mod, mod, mod world!


My husband and I enjoyed a birthday party recently where three of our groovy friends were turning 60.  So to celebrate, they had a "Remember the 60's?"  party.  We thought it would be far out to dress up...okay, I thought it would be far out, and my husband is such a good sport about supporting me!  So, off to my favorite thrift store for half off everything day.  I picked up a large moo-moo, green sandals, men's dress pants, and two knit shirts.  One more stop to pick up cheap shower curtain rings and I was ready to go.  Together, both outfits totaled less than $18! (I already had the hat, glasses, and earrings.)  I used the fabric from the moo-moo to make the dress.  The aqua fabric for the neckband and the inset belt was the moo-moo's lining.  I tapered the pant legs.  The shirt was made by painstakingly picking off the trim from one shirt, and then using part of that shirt to inset a "V" onto the white shirt.  The trim was then sewn on top of the "V".






Costume Tip:  Look to the internet for inspiration.  This was mine...
