At some time in every mom’s life she wonders how to make a peacock costume.  Ok maybe.  But if not you should try this (even for yourself as an alternative to the less than classy adult costumes that you can buy these days..).  This isn’t meat to be a gown that lasts forever so we haven’t hemmed and tapered.  If you sew well, you can adapt it!

4.  fit the dress by pulling the shoulder strap until it is snug around bust and pin any excess fabric.
