If you’re like me and are slightly manic about what you want to be for Halloween (Frida Kahlo? Liz Lemon from 30 Rock? Cool spooky ghost?) and have been waiting up to the very the last minute to put something together, well you’re in luck. With this simple hooded cloak ghost costume (made from two twin sheets) you’ll be haunting the halls in no time!
Step 2. Sew them together length wise. Cut out a head hole in the very center of both sheets (or do like I did and just seam rip the center stitches until your head can fit through and you are comfortable with the size of the hole).
Step 3. Fold fabric in fourths so that the head hole is in upper right hand corner.
Step 4. Trim corner opposite of head hole, rounding out the base of the cloak.
Steps 5 & 6. Using remaining, trimmed fabric, cut two semicircles for hood (you can measure from the high forehead to the base of your neck and then add 3 inches of ease of just eye it based on how large you want it to be).
Step 7. Sew semicircles together stoping about two thirds of the way through (this will be the neck area where you will attach the cloak). Hem edges of hood.
Step 8. Sew hood onto cloak at the neck hole – leaving a bit of room at the base of the neck for tie.
Step 9. Sew ribbons on to each side of the neck hole at the base of the hood for tie. Place your costume on, add a bit of ghoulish make up and let the haunting begin!
This concludes our 5 full days of Halloween marathon! I hope you have been frightfully inspired.
Happy haunting this Halloween weekend!!
