Betty Cooper – Dream Sequence | Riverdale
Made for : Dragoncon 2017
Background : At this time in my life, I was OBSSESED with both Riverdale and vintage fashion. So when Riverdale did it’s episode that began in a 1950s style dream sequence I knew I had to make something from it. I wore it to the badge collection day of Dragoncon that year.
Things used :
- olive green upholstery fabric
- pink satin ribbon
- gold and pink ribbon
Almost this entire outfit was found at the second hand store. Although the blouse was the one I wore for part of my Harry Potter uniform and I made the skirt.
I found it really difficult to find a green fabric that was anywhere close so I ended up with this upholstery fabric from Spotlight. It was okay but the gold designs on it were a bit too prominent. I made a simple circle skirt and sewed on the ribbons in layers to match Betty’s. I did originally buy the pink flowers to add on as well but never got around to it.
