Guess who finally finished the denim witch hat!

It’s a lot rougher than I had originally conceptualized, but there was a point where I realized: because it was imprecisely measured scraps of jeans hand sewn, it would never be neat per se, so I just leaned into that rough patchwork look. Like the Sorting Hat but AMERICAN.

… I kind want to wear all of my denim stuff and make a Jean Witch™ outfit

(Ask Box Advent Calendar is now open!)

Recently got a malong on my travels. I know there are traditional styles of dress with it, but I wanted to incorporate these ancient Greek chitons for fun.


The safety pins alone were a little too flimsy, so a few stitches, a waist belt, and tada!

The fold is long enough I could make it a peplum or even a sort of hood, so that’s some fun variety.

I’ll probably make some tweaks before it’s fully ready to wear… but hooray! I finally did a thing!

Today is the only day I have free this week so I made this to help decompress my brain.

(Also, I couldn’t sleep last night and I have a pair of denim pants that were due for projects. I saw one idea for how to turn the butt part into an apron/work belt type thing but I wanted to see if I could use the legs somehow. Hence.. witch hat?

I’m not saying this is for a cosplay of a certain denim-clad magician, but it certainly couldn’t hurt)
