One of my husband's co-workers is going on to a new career, so we had a going away party for him... a Star Wars themed going away party.
I decided to go as Han Solo. Just because. I assembled as much as I could. Got some pants and a shirt from a thrift store (and ribbon, to glue on the sides of the pant legs) (by the way, it was hard to find a shirt with the right kind of collar. What I got was a button-down and a bit too small, but it would do). Bought a blaster and spray-painted it black. Got a holster. The only thing I absolutely could not find was a suitable vest.
So I had to make one. It's significant that I point out here that I've never sewn any clothing in my life. But, I got some assistance from my mother-in-law, and the vest turned out pretty great. I actually really love it.
Next week I'll show you pictures from the party. I wasn't the hostess (my sister-in-law was), but it was pretty awesome and I wanted to share.
