How To Make An Audrey Hepburn Costume Using A Girls Tutu

audrey hepburn halloween costumeHere at Girls Crochet Headbands, we love Halloween not just for the candy and decorations, but for the creative costumes, too! To us, a great Halloween costume isn’t just cute and clever—it’s also affordable. And better yet, it’s made of pieces and accessories like girls tutu skirts that can easily be worn again so you get more bang for your costume-buying buck!

With a few well-chosen accessories, you can transform your little princess into the glamorous Audrey Hepburn in an ensemble that’s perfect for a night out in Hollywood—or at least a snack at Tiffany’s.  We’re not the only ones in love with this costume idea—one of our Facebook fans, Wendy Elliott Sass, had the same spark of inspiration and we can’t wait to see photos!

This simple, no-sew costume can be made almost entirely of Girls Crochet Headband products with the addition of a few accessories you probably already have on hand. We’ve included a quick tutorial and shopping list in case you’d like to recreate this modern take on a classic icon.

Adorable Audrey

  1. Black tutu
  2. Black tutu top
  3. A black flower hair clip (we used the Black Shimmer Rose Flower Hair Clip, but any of them will work)
  4. Black ribbon
  5. Costume jewelry pearls
  6. Sunglasses
  7. Black shoes

We added the black ribbon to the tutu top to create the look of straps. Just cut two long pieces and thread through one of the holes on the front of the top. Then, when she’s ready to wear her costume, adjust the ‘straps’ by tightening as needed and then tying them in a knot through one of the holes in the back of the tutu top. We doubled the long strand of pearls for her necklace and wrapped a strand around her wrist multiple times to simulate the effect of several pearl bracelets.

The best part? After she’s done signing autographs and working the red carpet, she can reuse the items over and over again. And that, in itself, deserves a standing ovation!

We’d love to know what costumes you’re creating this Halloween. Feel free to stop by our Facebook page and share a photo!
