DRESS IT UP - OCTOBER

Hellooooo!!!  Its so hard to believe that there are only 2 more of these to make to finish the set!!!!!  I have had so much pleasure making these dresses.  If you fancy a go its never too late....pop over ~here~ to meet the lovely Margaret & take a look at more dresses!!!

Most people seem to have gone for an Autumn theme this month but as I did that last month I have gone for something Gothic...as in Halloween!!

click to enlarge

Once again I have used my lovely blogging friend GINI's download design.  You should pop over to see her as she does some amazing stuff & has a wit to have you rolling on the floor hahaha!

The paper I used is BG Eerie.  I dabbed black ink on the lace before I gathered & glued it.  I then pinked the edges roughly to make it look tatty!  The bits I cut off were used for the straps & round the middle.I have actually embossed a spider onto the bodice but it doesn't show up too well :(  never mind!

Quite a few seem to be showing their wardrobes this month but as I am mounting mine onto a large canvas I don't have one .....er that made sense in my head rofl!

Thanks for taking a look today, don't forget to pop over to Margarets to see more lovely October dresses, Hugs FOR NOW XXX

I'm all caught up in that spiderweb and loving it! This is one stunning Halloween costume. Although I couldn't get the photo to enlarge, I really DID see the spider. The lace really tops it off.

Wish I had decided to mount my dresses. In fact, I may still do that. And it made sense in my head, too!
