Waylaid by Marcus

Well, I have been freaky crazy busy this past week at work and have had little time to do anything.
The other night my friend Marcus showed up with a costume in need of fixing:
He had washed his wool sweater dress and it had shrunk (Doh!) So could I help him fix it? I suggested adding faux fur trim to the hemline and sleeves, or leopard velvet or a boa, but he wasn't convinced so I dragged him over to JoAnn Fabrics and picked out a lovely flowery rayon for a flounce and sleeves.

Doesn't he look fantabulous? It's for a character he portrays who is (I believe) an elderly Chanteuse who sings risque songs. Marcus is an incredible singer and needs to get famous for it soon!

What a great fix! But I do like your idea of the fur trim even better!
