The Plaid Horror

Fabric / Materials: About a thousand old plaid shirts.
Pattern: Truly Victorian with some modification

Introduction: Setting the Wayback Machine to 2006, I made a hideous plaid evening gown for a friend. Recalling it, another friend commissioned a gown with a similar concept. It was dubbed the "Plaid Horror", and work begun on 1880s inspired thrift store chic formal attire. The skirts, both over and under, are adapted from Truly Victorian late bustle patterns. There are larger picture available on Just click the picture.


  1. Thank you! I can't wait to add some kind of horrible trim. Maybe frayed burlap or faux fur or something equally classy. Like duct tape.
