Here is this year’s Halloween costume just before I hemmed it. I wanted to show it at a longer hem length to illustrate that although the French Maid costume has a slutty image, it can be conservative & classy. I think that any woman at any shape, weight or age could wear this and look darling. I’m wearing it with a knee-length crinoline. I have a shorter, mid-thigh pettislip that I wore for the hemmed up version (photos in full makeup, hair and accessories coming soon).
