What was your inspiration?
My husband loves old cars, so after seeing this pattern, it was a must have costume for the annual Halloween party we attend each year. I love making our costumes for this party and these are probably the ones I am most proud of.
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to complete them in time for the party, and make them look so authentic.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be ready to go through lots of denim needles...I think I used up 4.
