I started this gown in the summer of ’08 for Halloween that year… It was a HUGE project (for me) and it didn’t get finished until February ’09. Last year, I wore something else so finally I’ll be wearing this as my costume for Halloween ’10!
There’s no party, but I love dressing up to hand out candy to the kids. I decorate the lawn in a vintage styled silhouette theme and set up a buffet table with savory and sweet treats, plus refreshments for trick or treaters and their parents. The firepit is brought up to the driveway too for added atmosphere and a hearth to gather around.
I’ve not updated my blog in a while; I’ve recently jumped back into sewing after taking the summer off, although it’s been more of an apron kick than garments. Big projects will be resumed soon!
