Purple, black, cobwebs and spiders

On Saturday I took Juliette to the fabric store to get her out of the house for a while. She SAID she wanted a pink princess dress. But when we got there she saw the Halloween fabric and insisted she was only interested in this purple and black fabric with cobwebs and spiders. “You can wear Halloween ANY time of the year, Papa!” So it was. Not exactly what I had in mind, but she seems thrilled with the idea. Let’s see how she feels when she wakes up tomorrow and sees it.

Ruffles, satin ribbon, ric rac edging on the hem and neck, a perfect narrow rolled hem on the polka-dot ruffle – and skulls, spiders, cobwebs (that sorta look like flowers from a distance). What a combination!

  1. OMG!!! What an adorable dress! She’s just what you always needed Boyd — a little girl to sew for. I think it’s the perfect Easter dress. I’ve been finding spiders all over my house lately. They must be the new Easter symbol — dash the ninnies!

  2. This dress is just adorable with all the ruffles and rick rack. That new machine is getting a good breaking in.

  3. YOU certainly seem to be having fun in creating for her! I wonder if she’ll say she looks “bootiful” (or perhaps “COOL” will be the new word)!!

  4. Well, it isn’t her actual Easter dress, that was bought months ago. But she did react very positively when seeing it done this morning when she woke up.

  5. It is so great that you let her pick what she wanted 🙂 The dress is very cute and she will look adorable in it!
