Share in Style Halloween with Sewingadicta

A couple of weeks ago, Rosy of Sewingadicta asked me if I would participate in this week's Share and Style post. I would do anything for this lady!!!! Rosy is so talented and so sweet. You may remember that she participated in the pillowcase project for the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital.
Here's a close up of my favorite. They were all so lovely, but this one with the crocheted trim was extra special. There are children sleeping on these pillowcases that will never know that they came all the way from the Canary Islands. But I'm sure they can feel Rosy's love :)
 Rosy always creates lovely clothes that have a vintage feel and just a bit of whimsy.
 I absolutely love how she took this Halloween print and gave it a sophisticated feel.
Rosy and I did not talk about what we would be doing prior to the post, but I guess great minds think alike as Rosy did spiders........
and so did I!!!!!
I actually made the spider.
I rather like how he turned out. A little confession, I was always one of those kids that would capture snakes and spiders as I was mesmerized by them. I guess I'm just a tomboy at heart!
The dress is the piece I created for the sleeve class I did at the American Sewing Expo. This will probably be the one and only time that I will ever wear the dress with the two different sleeves. But so many asked to see it on me, so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity.The dress is fun, just not very practical. For the right occasion though, the sleeve would be great.
 Be sure to pop over to Rosy's blog and see more of her lovely pictures. This is also a link up opportunity, so if you  have a Halloween related piece that you would like to share, link away!!
Happy Halloween !

  1. Two lovely dresses! You both look fantastic. I love Halloween and getting to dress up. Your dress is amazing. Not too keen on the spiders though, they give me the willies. We are having a good year for spiders here in the UK, but a bad year for arachnophobes. ;) xx

    1. I am so silly with spiders. I won't let my husband tear down their webs. I just love to watch them spin and I also enjoy just observing them. I am some people's worst nightmare I'm sure ;)

  2. Swinging by from Share in Style. Your dress is fab and I'm SO loving the giant spider fascinator!
