Martha's Fabulous Costume

Martha's Halloween costume this year (at least on the cover of the new Halloween special issue on newsstands now) is that of a ghoulish equestrienne. Having risen from the dead, she is on the prowl in the woods of Bedford, moving silently through the mist on her black steed! Below are images from the special issue magazine that depict Martha's elegantly sinister costume.

To make this costume you will need basic sewing supplies, about 9 yards of black taffeta, 1 1/2 yards of 1 1/2-inch-wide black ribbon (for the cape), a top hat, 1 yard of millinery netting, 1 yard of black tulle, 1 2/3 yards of 1 1/2-inch-wide gray ribbon (for the hat), 1 black ostrich feather, fabric glue, and 2/3 yards of white cotton shirting. To learn how to make the costume, see page 82 of the new magazine.
