More Halloween! Are you getting sick of it yet? I’m not. Here’s another spider-themed dress, which I have dubbed The Spider and the Girl:
This lime green ribbon with black spiders is so much fun. I think it looks like the spiders are dancing along, having a grand old time. I selected the bodice fabric because (a) it is the same green as the ribbon and (b) it has a dotted line/swirl motif that is very spiderweb-esque. I just found this spider embellishment recently and jumped out at me as perfect for this dress.
I picked this fabric for the skirt because it reminds me of a tiled roof, like you might see in a Gorey illustration, and I can just picture spiders creeping up the tiles, all stealthy in the night. Creepy!
I also finally got around to making a mask with the Puchi Collective template. I used felt and attached a pipe cleaner handle so that Blythe can hold it herself. I think it’s pretty cute!
I used the Puchi Collective Empire Dress pattern and added an extra band of the Jolly Roger fabric at the hem. The more I work on dresses for Blythe using the patterns that are available online, the more I see how I can make small changes to suit my own tastes. Yay for customizing things.
With that, I will also announce that I have finally named my Blythe. Drumroll, please…
The winner is: Willow! Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll and submitted suggestions.
So, the day after I got my Blythe, we left for a roadtrip vacation to visit my sis and her hub in Florida. (Internet disclaimer: Note to any would-be thieves, we have house sitters.) So I haven’t had a chance to do much with her yet, but I had made one dress before I even got her. Here it is!
I posed her with some of Susan’s stuff today. Hunting with the Microscope:
