    Adorable! And it wouldn't be a bad skirt either :) I'm presently finishing up a "retro" Halloween themed dress myself.

    So many pages of beautiful projects! I thought I would share one of mine. I made these pillowcase style dresses for my nieces, since they are 5 years apart and love to dress alike. I still need to get action photos of them but both of my sister in laws have failed to send me them.

    Miss sofia, sheeplady and hailey greenhat - thanks so much! The rickrack is printed on the fabric, and originally I was going to use it for a pencil skirt. But then just about anything makes a good pencil skirt!

    Halloween Dress! :D The polka-dots are flocked on. This is created from three patterns and based off a dress i saw and really wanted but was 95$, i recognized the spiderweb fabric and set about making my own for far less :) I'm pretty happy with it, but i wish i could have encased the neck in black and still had it lay flat.

    How did you do in the end wahine? If you haven't sewn the straps on my advice (as an ex shoe fitter!) is to avoid heel grips when shoes are too loose as they just push your toes further forward, usually causing bruising sooner or later (I have done this in the past) and also stretch the heel counter out making them even looser at the heel.

    My advice is to put foam half insoles in the front of your shoes (only half, not full ones), you may need more than one pair if they are really loose. This will push your foot back and into the heel better without squashing your toes.

    Flocking is fabulous. In fact flocking once got me into a conversation with Brian Setzer

    Your dress is ♥adorable♥. Black bias tape didn't work across the neckline?

    Thank you :)
    The bias tape was too stiff, it held the neck up like a fishbowl : / I have some old thin black velvet ribbon i just found so i'll try that in a bit (busy chipping paint off walls in prep for painting presently).
