That’s right- a no sew, no fuss, super easy nun costume. Most of you can probably put this together with stuff you already have at home.
What you need to make an easy nun costume:
- Graduation gown (or plain black dress)
- White t-shirt
- Black fabric or black t-shirt
Start with an old graduation gown. If you don’t have one, you can probably get one pretty cheap at a thrift store. I’m pretty lucky that my husband graduated from Franciscan, so his was black. However, if your graduation robe is a different color, do a quick google image search to see if nuns come in that color- chances are there’s an order somewhere that does! Then put on a white t-shirt- but not all the way. Put your face through, but don’t pull it all the way over your head. Like so:
Then throw the sleeves behind your shoulders. Nothing too hard here. You can even see that the shirt I’m using has a small logo on it- whatever!
Then throw a piece of black fabric on top. I didn’t have any black fabric, so I folded a black t-shirt in half long ways and it worked just fine. Attach with bobby pins for extra wearability.
