Lydia Deetz Poncho

For this project, my customer wanted me to make the poncho that Lydia Deetz wears in the animated "Beetlejuice." 

My thought? Huzzah, a not insanely complicated costume! Which was good, because I totally got overbooked for Halloween. Anyhow, I cut out two red poncho pieces, with the back slightly longer than the front...

... and used black ribbon to create the spider-web pattern. It was actually not quite as difficult as I expected, considering that it's hard to sew ribbon in a curve and the satin I was using had more stretch than I'd anticipated when buying it.

Once I got the lining in, though, it looked pretty snazzy.

Best part? My customer adored it. I cannot tell you  how much I love happy customers... pretty much the best things ever.

  1. Awesome job on the Lydia poncho! If I ask you to make me one, how much would would it cost (if you don't mind me asking)?


Welcome to the discussion! Please note that due to chronic illness, I am no longer taking commissions of any kind.

Thank you for being polite and profanity free :)
