Women's Flower Child Costume
We often wish we could go back in time. If we could go anywhere, we'd go back to the 1960s. All the music, the psychedelic vibes and hippie culture. Who wouldn't feel at home there? Of course, we've spent a lot of time thinking about what kind of outfit would be perfect to wear, should we ever get our hands on a working time machine. Our costume experts went to work, once again, to design the perfect costume to wear to the '60s.
This Flower Child costume is a women's outfit designed to make you feel right at home at Woodstock '69. The costume comes with a white dress with lace trim and wide, billowing bell sleeves. A faux leather vest with fringe fits over the dress, since no hippie costume is complete without a bit of fringe! The flower headband adds the finishing touch, since if you're going to San Francisco, you need to wear flowers in your hair (or so we're told anyways).
We'll let you know if we ever find a way to successfully travel back in time, but until that happens, this Flower Child outfit will look great at any retro party, or any hippie music festival in the summer.

White dress and fringe vest (outer part) fit well and was true to the photo.
The headband fell apart even before wearing it. I tried to fix it but its so cheaply made that its hopeless.
The lining of the white dress was much smaller/way shorter than the dress itself, was very cheaply made and made the dress uncomfortable. It also looked weird because it was at least 8 inches above the hem of the dress...it didn't actually cover the parts you'd want a lining to cover! I opted to hack the lining out and use a slip since the dress is super see-through.
This costume is really not made well, and if half of it needed repair/modifications, I'm not sure why I wasted my money. I think I could have bought parts separately and/or crafted it and had a better outcome. I bought it to save me time but after I had to repair/modify it so much it wasn't a time saver at all.
