How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Tear 2 1/2 yards of chiffon fabric into 3-inch-wide strips. (Tip: The more fraying, the better, to give this costume a mummified look.)

Step 2

For the skirt, cut strips of chiffon in half and use a cow hitch knot to loop the strips around the elastic. Bunch together the strips as you go to create a full tattered and torn skirt. Once the elastic is filled, sew the ends together to form the circle skirt.

Step 3

Pin strips onto the shirt, crisscrossing as you work your way across and down the front. Stitch through the center of each strip to attach the chiffon to the shirt until the shirt is completely covered.

For the finishing touch, use extra strips of frayed chiffon to wrap around the limbs and head.
